Born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland; David Hart began designing clothing at a young age. At
seventeen, he received the Fashion Group International Scholarship Award and moved to New York City
to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 2004, he received his BFA in fashion design, with a
specialization in evening wear and tailoring.
Over the next seven years, while designing for Anna Sui, Tommy Hilfiger, and Ralph Lauren, Hart refined
his skills. There, he honed his eye for sartorial craftsmanship, explored his interest in the history of
American sportswear, and continued to cultivate his own distinct aesthetic.
In 2009, Hart launched his independent neckwear line, David Hart & Co., a collection of luxury ties, bow
ties, and pocket scarves. Expanding his focus over the following years, he debuted his first full
ready-to-wear collection of menswear in 2013 under the label David Hart.
Hart prides himself on creating confident yet approachable clothing for the modern gentleman. With
every collection, Hart consistently lends a modern eye with a nostalgic twist. Each piece is infused with
history and classic details that come to life in a fresh way.
