The inspiring story of Kenny Flanagan and the creation of his “Kas Collection.”

D.C. born, New York native, Kenny “Kas” Flanagan has walked through life, overcoming the challenges, adversity, and traumatic experiences he experienced, by rejecting the notion of becoming another statistic and reshaping his struggles into fuel for his success. So let’s enter the tale, the journey of an award-winning man, who has paved a lane in high fashion for black designers everywhere.

In his early years, Kenny remembers wearing tailored suits and carrying briefcases in elementary school. He describes his mother as the “true element of a woman,” a woman who was always fly. Through her influence, Kenny developed a natural eye for fashion and the passion for being different and standing out. Being a shy child, his mother encouraged him to be bold and do his own thing, by telling him, “If you always fit in, you’ll never be seen.”
