Based in Brooklyn, New York, Kris Harring is a gender neutral eveningwear brand taking a softened approach to traditional tailoring.
Based around the deconstruction and re-imagination of the classic tuxedo, the brand looks to explore the ideals of a world in “uniform”; where open-ness, vulnerability and freedom of self through wardrobe transcends.

As a gender non-conforming designer, it is extremely important for me to work with companies and professionals who align with my personal mission and have assembled a talented team of event producers, staff, photographers, makeup and hair artists, along with amazing models in the LGBTQIA community to help bring my vision to life.
