David began in the fashion industry over a decade ago: pioneering collaborations with some of the industry's biggest names, the go-to designer for Hollywood's elite, with his designs being worn by celebrities, athletes, and fellow fashion industry insiders. Mike has also made a name for himself, as an influential tastemaker, event planner, and owner of a successful marketing and events agency Brand Allies.
In 2017, Related collaborated with famed artist, James Goldcrown for their second women’s collaboration.James is notably known around the world for his "Bleeding Hearts" / Love wall murals, frequently seen trending through social media. They can currently be found in New York, California, Texas, Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago. Related and Crown chose to bring his signature heart
pattern to a women’s limited run collection consisting of a bralette, socks, boy briefs and a thong.
Related Garments was built on the belief that too many men are ignoring a quick and effortless way to improve their style: upgrading their underwear. By presenting guys with simple, coordinated, and comfortable options, David and Mike have made it easy to ditch old underwear and put on a more refined set of undergarments. They promote their “Undress To Impress” tagline
among their customers, really striving to get their male following to take pride in all elements of their daily wardrobe.
