The Bronx Clothing Company was formed based on the desire to create clothing “inspired by The Bronx for people worldwide.”  The Bronx, NY is an amazing place that is rich in history, art, architecture, music, cultural diversity, and of course fashion. Bronx Clothing Company has embraced these outstanding aspects of The Bronx and has developed a line of clothing that pays tribute to them.

The Bronx Clothing Company was started by three Bronx men who had a vision to bring Bronx-inspired clothing to the borough and beyond. Pat Keaney, Mike Fenwick and Bobby Cook, all three Bronx born and raised, are bringing the art, architecture, cultural diversity of The Bronx to the rest of the world via their cutting edge clothing line.

“Our designers have spent countless hours traveling around The Bronx, visiting well known and not so well known places to draw inspiration, and we’re proud to display the results,” said Bronx Clothing co-founder Mike Fenwick. “We’re looking forward to this event, which will provide opportunities for up and coming models, and will give the public a chance to view our new offerings.”
