Trained in branding and interior design, Dan Mazzarini began his career working with Kramer Design Group in New York City. Within four months, he was made lead designer on a re-launch of the Michael Kors brand, a $20 million project which saw his designs implemented in over 2,000 locations in the U.S. and abroad. At 24, he was appointed Design Director and increased the interiors and branding business by more than 300 percent. With Kramer, he directed projects for clients such as Calvin Klein, John Varvatos, Shiseido, Movado, Narciso Rodriguez, Waterworks and Nautica. In 2006, Mazzarini was tapped by Ralph Lauren to join its renowned store design team. As Director of Polo Store Development, he has designed and installed over 100 Ralph Lauren stores in more than 16 countries.
Brian Humphrey’s career began when he was hired from Parsons School of Design by the legendary fashion label Halston. He then moved on to design product for Ralph Lauren Home, where some of his iconic creations are still in the line. Later serving as Consulting Design Director at Calvin Klein, Humphrey was largely responsible for building the in-house Store Design Department, which oversaw international department store shops, showrooms, corporate offices and special projects. Throughout his tenure, he worked closely with the Visual Presentation Group and contributed to the launch of the much-heralded Calvin Klein Home brand. In 1996, Humphrey embarked on a solo career which has successfully straddled projects for high profile retail and private clients.
