The G. Destin Collection was born after a lifetime working under some of the best and most influential designers in the fashion industry. Haitian born, Brooklyn raised, Garry Destin, brings over 20 years of experience to his signature line, The G. Destin Collection.
Beginning his career under American fashion icon, Donna Karan, he then went on to work for designers, Tracy Feith, Susanne Horton, and William Kleinberg, to name a few. Garry’s artistic talents were recognized at a very young age. Winning countless awards for his artwork, his grade-school teachers referred to him as “The Next, Picasso” and commissioned him as the student who would exclusively sketch the Christmas Picture for the school. Although, he still paints and has a great admiration for art, his real passion, is fashion.
The son of a dressmaker, Garry’s ‘passion for fashion’ is in his blood. He remembers spending his spare time helping his mother cut patterns, then rushing to the well-known Iron Market in Port Au Prince, where his grandmother sold local art. After graduating high-school, he decided to design his own affordable clothing line and enrolled at The Mayer Institute, where he studied pattern-making. He then went on to study apparel, millinery, foot-wear and accessories at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in Manhattan. Shortly after, Homme de Maison was born and he began selling his collection in local Manhattan boutiques and consignments stores.
The G. Destin Collection brand is committed to excellence and uses only the finest materials for its accessories. All of the items are made with 100% leather and with a signature red lining. 60% of the leather is bought in South Florida and all items are hand-crafted at the designer’s expansive production studio in the heart of Hallandale, Florida’s fashion district. Our made in America production is paramount to upholding America’s reputation for superior craftsmanship.
The launching of the G. Destin Collection is a dream come true for Garry. His dresses are made for a curvier hour-glass silhouette. The movie Victor Victoria inspired his menswear line.
In March of 2012, Garry was awarded the, Excellence in Accessories Award, at Miami Beach’s 14th Annual International Fashion Week. He showcased his collection at Atlanta’s Fashion Week and various other fashion events. The G. Destin Collection can be purchased online at:www.gdestincollections.com and SNAZZYOULET.COM. He hopes to have his collection in stores across the globe in the near-future.
Garry resides in Pembroke Pines, Fl. with his wife, Tracy, and their two boys, Theo and Sam.
