Footwear Designer & Founder, Hollingsworth Sole
Founder & CEO of Hollingsworth Sole, American footwear designer and serial entrepreneur Mr. Michael Hollingsworth aspires to see Black culture well-represented in the luxury brand space. Uninspired and tired of wearing clothing and accessories by designers he didn’t know, Mr. Hollingsworth sought to create a meaningful culture-representative brand experience. Hollingsworth paired his proven business acumen and a nostalgia for the classic era of dressing to impress in Harlem, New York. The epicenter for entrepreneurial Black creatives, Hollingsworth’s soulful Harlem home provided the greatest inspiration for his launch of Hollingsworth Sole luxury brand experience.
“Black Americans are the original makers, creators, and curators of American style, here in Harlem we have long cultivated this expertise. We’ve been delivering premium quality to our communities for centuries; I intend to honor this rich legacy” Mr. Michael Hollingsworth
