About the Designer
The COURTNEY WASHINGTON brand is named after our women's fashion designer, who started creating patterns and sewing at the age of 9. By the time he was 17, he opened his first designer clothing store in Kingston, Jamaica. He then left for New York City for formal training in fashion at the famous Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Pratt Institute. Courtney opened his first store in the United States in 1998, where he went on to design for celebrities, department stores and boutiques.
