Since his earliest memories, Derek Green has held the vision to design women's clothing and manage his own company.
All the steps he has taken, from his education at Parsons to his tenure as head designer for Tommy Hilfiger's Tommy Girl line, have been made with this singular purpose. Each position has given him the opportunity to learn and perfect something new.
On Sept 12, 2005, Derek presented his first runway collection at New York's Olympus Fashion Week and his designs are currently sold at 300 stores, including Fred Segal and New York-based Atrium.
When asked where he finds his inspiration, he proudly says, "...from the women closest to me, my wife, my Mom and my sister. They are all strong and sexy women who demand a lot from their clothes-comfortable fit and great style. They have different body types and personalities so I constantly look at what styles, fabrics and colors work and 'flow' from there".
