Daiki Suzuki

Daiki Suzuki is the Japanese founder and creative director of contemporary fashion label Engineered Garments. Born in 1962 in Hirosaki, Aomori Prefecture, Suzuki aspired to enter the fashion industry from middle school onwards, moving to Tokyo to study at the Vantan Design Institute. After graduating, Suzuki worked for an apparel company handling imports, before joining cult Japanese retailer NEPENTHES as a buyer and moving to the United States in 1989. After stints in Boston, New York and San Francisco, Suzuki eventually moved back to New York in 1998 to establish the first NEPENTHES office stateside. Suzuki then founded Engineered Garments in 1999, a label which has since become acclaimed for its well-constructed and intricately designed menswear, which strikes a balance between vintage prep and blue-collar workwear. Between 2006 and 2010, Suzuki served as the creative director for Woolrich Woolen Mills, whilst also launching a separate collaboration with Levi’s and being named “Best New Menswear Designer in America” by GQ and the CFDA. Suzuki currently lives and works in New York City, and practises surfing in his downtime.
