A fashion icon and style connoisseur, he has established himself in the fashion industry as a disruptor with an eye for timeless pieces and unique creations. As someone who started his journey with fashion at age 10, he has had a lifetime of opportunities to experiment, cut, and mix materials and create exceptional designs. Born in Ghana to a Malian dad who was a tailor, he learned the intricacies of fashion design firsthand.
One of his priorities as a fashion designer was to let personalities shine through clothing. So, you would find edgy yet calm and street yet classic cuts among his collections. The hip-hop culture of the 90s heavily influenced him, and many of his designs back then reflected that era in the best possible way.
From a young age, he was determined to design for some of his idols, so when he moved to America, he started to work as a tailor, and it was on this path he met Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan. Meeting Raekwon was a significant turning point in Touré’s life because the doors to designing for many other celebrities opened afterward. Touré had been prepared for this moment ages ago, and his brilliant designs made way for him.
He has worked as a designer with the music industry A-listers like Diddy, LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Swiss Beatz, Chris Brown, Jason Derulo, and many more celebrities. Beyond Hollywood, his designs have been seen on African stars like Wizkid, Davido, Patoranking, Seyi Shay, Shattawale, and many others.
Alhasan Touré has established himself as a renowned name in the fashion industry in America and beyond. He came up with his own clothing label to expand his reach and open his designs to everyone. The ‘Leather King’ designed classy, unique everyday pieces for the forward-thinking, eccentric fashion lovers in today’s generation. Touré Designs is his way of cementing and establishing his brand as a known fashion designer.
The pieces would be available to shop worldwide at his online store or his showroom in the German District of New York. As time goes on, stores will be open across the country and eventually across the world.
Touré’s designs celebrate the uniqueness of our individuality, the depth of African culture, and the audacity of our boldness. These attributes can be seen in each design’s tiniest details, from the bold prints to the stylish cuts. He blends modern fashion with traces of HipHop and his unique ideas to create timeless pieces, which are now available to a wider audience.
