It All Comes From Love

 

The Man Has Style is dedicated to the styling of men. Fashion, art, design, architecture, interiors, cars, accessories – all things with a focus on quality and exceptional design, TMHS was founded by Australian designer and men’s styling enthusiast, Sarah Crawford, in early 2012.

“I have a background in fashion, art and design, having worked as a designer for close to 15 years. My passion is definitely within men’s styling and I’ve had an obsession with this since a young age.  One of my earliest memories of this is walking down the streets and older gentlemen wearing impeccable suits and having them tipping their hat to say, “good morning”.  As a young girl it obviously made a big impression on me as I have always found myself fascinated with the gentlemanly aspect of men’s styling.  I’m drawn to impeccable design, quality finishes and all that reminds me of times of the past.  Images, products, designs, architecture, music, films, cars and art that evokes emotion that inspires and holds its place over time, and of course, quality. In a world where over-consumption is rampant, I like to focus on having less, where what you have is long-lasting and able to face the test of time.”

Since 2012, Sarah has been responsible for almost the entire curation and editorial content of the website and blog, as well as all social media. Working full time as a fashion designer, Sarah would spend every spare moment immersed in menswear and nights and weekends were dedicated to this passion. In 2014, Sarah was unable to attend London Collections: Men for the Spring Summer collections, which led her to reach out for the first collaboration with London based fashion photographer, Melissa Uren. Also from Australia, Sarah had met Melissa at a design conference a few years earlier and shared a love of menswear. Melissa represented TMHS at the event that year and with great success. In 2016, Sarah introduced contributing writers with Melissa Forbes working on her first piece in March. Melissa’s writing style perfectly captured the essence of The Man Has Style, allowing the romanticism and passion of what started this blog many years ago to come through in her natural writing style.

After taking a few months off in late 2015 to work on a new website for TMHS and reflect on the past almost four years, Sarah launched the new look website with a strong schedule for 2016. With steps in place to expand TMHS team further, an exciting future is ahead.
