Belonging to the Ashanti tribe in Ghana, Africa, Henry Coffie is a talented fashion designer specializing in classic bespoke menswear and is also a successful business visionary. He entered the colorful world of fashion and design as an internee in Paris where he worked with a suit store called Yves Dorsey. In addition to this, he also worked with a men’s wear store in Paris called 3eme Stella Rosso. All of these different stores led to his increased love for men’s style and also lit his significant interest in designing suits. Despite all the stores he worked in, he was inspired the most by the immaculate European-style suits when he worked with Nicolas Massing London. The European designs and clean cuts of the suits were something that Henry was immediately drawn towards. His passion and determination soon made him believe that he too could make similar (or even better) designs. Henry is extremely enthusiastic about the suits that he designs as well as the sheer style and extravagance of an ideal tailor fit. Therefore, he makes sure to provide his customers with the best quality products and excellent customer service.
The experience that he gained after working with various men’s suit stores in Paris drove him to finally move to America in 2017. He shifted to America in order to pursue his lifelong dreams and ambitions. Although this transition from Europe to America was very difficult, he did not lose hope and worked hard to achieve something. Be that as it may, he was resolved to become the best menswear fashion designer in the world and therefore started to assemble his customer base portfolio. In addition to this, he also began to create networks with local suit designers in Philadelphia to expand his insight into the fashion industry there. Henry expresses that he does this work exclusively on the grounds that he is passionate about it. He further says that he loves the extravagance and luxury of an entirely customized and perfectly tailored suit, and how it communicates the grace of the individual who wears it. Thus, it was his sheer passion and love for fashion that drove him to start his own business, and he opened his first shop in America in May 2017 which has since been a significant accomplishment for him.
His store offers a variety of men’s conventional suits that are inspired by European designs. Apart from this, his brand also provides excellent and unique styles of an assortment of fits including standard, slim, and custom. Every one of his fits is made to give the customers a perfectly tailored look that praises their body type. In addition to this, the way the suit fits gives an overall polished look and makes sure that the individual wearing it oozes with class and sophistication. Moreover, Henry Coffie has likewise been granted various awards. He was regarded with the excellence award by The Fashion 500 in NYC and was also given the Fashion Designer 2019 Upper Darby Philadelphia award. What’s more, is that his name was also added to the Best Fashion Designer 2020 Business Hall of Fame.
