Ozwald Boateng Receives Lifetime Achievement Honor, New Film Chronciles Career

Menswear designer Ozwald Boateng broke the mold of traditional British bespoke suits at the age of 23. And since opening up his Saville Row store, the man whose designs amassed International fame has another story to tell this go round.

In “A Man’s Story”, a full-length documentary that unveils the past 12 years of Boateng’s life, the designers reveals his true self to the world. As talented with tailored suits and ready-to-wear as he is charming, Boateng publicly endured the dissolution of two marriages as well as the theft of his menswear collection.  

Still steadfast in his dream of tailored menswear, Boateng continues to solidify his place in British fashion today and recently took home the ARISE Lifetime Achievement Award from Arise Magazine Fashion Week 2012 this month.

“A Man’s Story” will be available for DVD purchase on March 19th.
