In his second year of law school, Brennan Manuel had a change of heart. Feeling a sense of creative stagnation, the New Orleans native decided to honor his childhood passion for fashion illustration and enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Menswear Design program. After attending FIT and working at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Manuel eventually returned to New Orleans and in January 2014, he launched 6AM Clothing, a line inspired by those “working hard to create the aesthetic beauty, seemingly effortless coolness and intricate detailing that is covetable fashion.”
In “Around the Clock with 6AM,” FiftyTwo45’s Jason models Manuel’s designs, photographed by Justin Hardiman and art directed by Heather Hansen.
