The “Originator” and ”The Godfather of Urban Fashion” are some of the titles that adorn the thrown of Karl Kani. In 1989 the Karl Kani brand was launched by the intrepid designer who inherently believed in the American dream. The unchartered waters of urban design were pierced by the Karl Kani brand donning the hip hop style that intertwined high fashion and the streets. In its early years the Kani brand and names such as Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Snoop Dog, Lil Kim’ , Nas, Ludacris and Dr. Dre were inseparable. Beyond its beginnings, Karl Kani’s line took on a more contemporary route with Live Life. Major names such as Will Smith, Tara Reid and Kelly Clarkson, Mischa Barton and Ashlee Simpson in the early 2000s reflect this shift. With record breaking sales throughout the international market the the Karl Kani brand has now taken on a new course. Today, the brand reflects the indie street subculture of American urban hubs while still incorporating high fashion. The companies American re-launch in 2013 will once again change the trajectory of fashion. The Karl Kani brand has now transitioned from its days in the 90s to the urban chic look of today. The evolution of the Kani brand is now here.

Fred Hammond is a Musician/Singer from Detroit Michigan. Born to Mildred Hammond in 1961, Hammond was one of 3 boys. (His brothers are Ray Hammond Jr. and Dave Hammond.) Having a background in church and music from a young age, Fred's first instrument was drums and eventually progressed to bass and piano. (Bass being his most prominent instrument.) After high school, he joined the U.S. Army along with a close friend of his Mitchell Jones. After they had gotten out of the Army, the two began to get involved in music ministry together. Hammond then auditioned to play bass for the Gospel singing group the Winans and toured with them from 1980 to 1982. Upon returning to Detroit, he and Mitchell Jones, along with 4 other friends (Karl Reid, Fred's Brother-in-Law Keith Staten, Michael Brooks and Michael Williams) formed the Gospel recording group "Commissioned." The group traveled the country doing singing engagements, establishing their fan-base and raising money to record an album. In 1985 under "Light Records", they released their first full album "I'm Going On." The group released 4 more albums under Light Records. (1986 "Go Tell Somebody"/ 1987 "On The Winning Side"/1988 "Will you be Ready?"/1989 "Ordinary just won't do") In 1990 the group moved to "Benson/Verity Records" and recorded their sixth album "State of Mind." This was the last album to be recorded by the group's original line-up as members Keith Staten and Michael Brooks left the group to pursue solo careers. New members Marvin Sapp, Maxx Frank, and Eddie Howard, Jr were welcomed before the group released their seventh album in 1991, which was simply titled "Number 7." This same year, Commissioned recorded an album with recording Artist, Carman called "Shakin' the House: Live." I
