Benny Gold apparel designer: Jason Yim
As 2014 comes to an end I find myself reflecting back on what we've accomplished with the Benny Gold brand over the past year. I have to say that, despite some substantial setbacks (getting burned out of our old warehouse space), 2014 was a year full of growth and expansion. We grew our team with the addition of designer David Smith who has managed to integrate himself seamlessly into the brand while still bringing his unique vision to the table.
Our biggest accomplishment has been the significant growth of our cut & sew program largely due to in-house apparel designer Jason Yim. Jason has been with the brand longer than anyone else on the team and has set the style and tone for our apparel through his innovative use of unique fabrics, colors and brand placement. He is also a longtime dear friend of mine and I owe him a debt of gratitude — thank you Jason!
That being said, we aren't content to rest on our laurels. The Benny Gold brand has more momentum now than ever before and we can't wait to show you what we have in-store for 2015. Happy New Year everyone!
