Hard working pup Hector Browne accompanies his father to work more often than not. He can be found performing quality control behind the scenes at all of Thom Browne’s runway shows. Hector has also proven to be a source of inspiration for the designer, resulting in high fashion handbags and doggy clothes.
Thom Browne was born 1965 in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He is an accomplished designer, receiving numerous awards and selling his collection internationally. He had modest beginnings, starting his business with five suits and an appointment-only shop in 2001. Thom Browne’s net worth is estimated to be $40 million, his company has grown by 400% in the last three years. Thom lives with boyfriend Andrew Bolton live in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, New York.
Browne has a rigid daily schedule, including running 8 miles every morning, eating the same breakfast and drinking a coupe glass of champagne most nights. These cultivated habits do little to inform on Thom’s often demented and always beautiful fashion shoots and runway themes. Shoots and Fashion Week runways in the past have included models on their deathbeds and nuns liberated from habits at the hands of male models. His dog, Hector, is often an inspiration resulting in leather or faux fur utilitarian handbags – some of which sell for upwards of $2,000.
