Brand Story

An industry leader in designing scarves, hats and cold weather accessories, David & Young’s trend conscious, fashionable accessories are all the rage with young women and popular celebrity icons!

In 1977, after noticing the emerging pop culture scene in downtown Manhattan, the founders began selling sunglasses to independent boutiques on St. Marks Street. In the 1980’s, boutiques were at a high point for cutting-edge street style fashions. Many local, up and coming artists were purchasing D&Y products; these local artists became internationally known as Madonna and Duran Duran!

Since then, David & Young has advanced into a design powerhouse focusing on accessories. David & Young branded products can be found at established retailers such as Nordstrom and Macy’s. In addition to supplying branded products, D&Y also specializes in developing private label programs from start to finish for major brand names such as Kohls, Charming Charlie, Disney, and Aldo!
