With all of the television buzz and celebrity gossip that surrounds us, not to mention our fast-paced lifestyles, we are sometimes left with little time to focus on fashion. Maybe that’s why when a brand comes along that demands our attention, we can’t help but jump on the bandwagon. Ed Hardy’s unmistakable style and passion will draw you in whether you are seeking it out or not. Whatever the reason, Ed Hardy is a brand that the world just can’t seem to get enough of.
Don Ed Hardy, the “godfather of the modern tattoo”, took his California influence and combined it with Asian inspirations to come up with the unique style that defines the Ed Hardy clothing line. Hardy began his career as a tattoo artist in San Francisco, and later decided to merge his artwork into fashion design. The rest is history.
In 2002, the Ed Hardy brand came into the public eye when Don Ed Hardy was approached by Ku USA, Inc. The company was interested in producing a clothing line that would feature Hardy’s artwork. Hardy Life immediately took off, and in only two years became a major fashion spotlight.
The Ed Hardy line skyrocketed in 2004 with the help of French designer Christian Audigier, who shares Hardy’s passion for bold, colorful art and design. The primary force behind the rise of Von Dutch, Audigier linked Ed Hardy to the celebrity world, pushing the brand to the same, if not higher status that he helped Von Dutch to reach.
Madonna, Paris Hilton, Shaquille O’Neal, Busta Rhymes, Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Denise Richards, Pharrell, Sylvester Stallone, and Shakira have all been seen sporting Ed Hardy.
The major defining point of Ed Hardy clothing is that the pieces are modeled from original tattoos, making them truly unique. Ed Hardy’s mesmerizing imagery and vivid colors yield a clothing line that is not only trend setting, but industry changing.
Ed Hardy is more than just clothing…it’s art, its counter culture, it’s a world wide phenomenon. The Ed Hardy line has become an authority on what’s hot and cool in the trendsetting urban markets. It’s clear that their sucecess will continue to build momentum and the Ed Hardy / Christian Audigier team are revolutionizing modern fashion design, as the create fashion history.
