Before even entering high school, Everett Hall had designed and constructed more than 300 garments. At Howard University, he became president of the school's Fashion and Textile Association and was a finalist for the Cutty Sark Award, which recognizes the nation's best student designer. When he launched his own fashion company in 1982, Hall started out small, but his well-tailored suits-made of the finest materials, such as Biella Italian wool—quickly garnered accolades. After teaming up with quality manufacturer Lubian 1911, he began to expand beyond his internationally distributed Made in Italy white label, opening his own Everett Hall Designs black-label boutiques in the Washington, D.C. area, the first in 1994, another in 1999.
