2008 has been a big year for Daiki Suzuki, along with numerous press and an award for designer of the year from GQ, Suzuki has been leading the way in mens work-wear with Engineered Garments.

The birth of Mo’Wax in the early 90’s introduced street culture to a pool of talent ranging from music, art, design, photography to fashion.
