The secret to a successful and fulfilling life comes from focused work and passionate dedication. Brennan Manuel took a leave of absence from law school to study Menswear Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. He later returned to his hometown of New Orleans to complete his Tulane law degree and move forward with his fashion career by participating in New Orleans’ fashion weeks.

Brennan moved back to NY after presenting a menswear collection during New York Fashion Week. He subsequently lent a hand to the Menswear RTW design team at 3.1 Phillip Lim and the RTW team at HARBISON Collection. He then worked as a designer and sourcing consultant for fashion incubator Manufacture NY (MNY). While working for MNY he won the opportunity to help Invista, the world’s largest integrated fiber, resin and intermediates company, launch a men’s “commuterwear” collection that was designed using their new fabric technologies. It allowed him to translate his design aesthetic to a broader audience all while gaining exposure to the business side of fashion. He subsequently worked for brands Kith NYC and Aeropostale, in addition to being a Design Mentor/instructor for the Cooper Hewitt DesignPrep 101 workshops on behalf of the Smithsonian Design Museum.

Launched in New York, 6AM is for those who believe luxury is a state of mind; that luxury is not confined to monetary wealth but extends to the positive influence that you generate. It is for those who are up early to rise and getting in late in order to fulfill their purpose. When one walks in their purpose they are transformed, elevated, richer in spirit and character. 6AM represents the culture whose lives are high-end because that is what they give. 6AM creates approachable affluence through pragmatic luxury detailing and youthful maturity. The divide between the East coast aesthetic and West coast sensibilities is bridged through clothing that uses high-end materials, thoughtful pattern making, and modern tailoring to transition the visionary professional from morning to evening.
