Manuel American Designs



He was responsible for making Johnny Cash the man in black. He crafted Elvis’ signature gold lamé suit. He fashioned the garments Bob Dylan wore when performing for the Pope. He has dressed all three Hank Williams. And if this is not enough to bring him a legendary status in music history, you can thank him for both The Rolling Stones and The Grateful Dead’s notorious insignias. But it doesn’t stop here: presidents, athletes, dancers, artists and movie stars also have donned his glittering couture. He has wardrobed nearly 100 movies and tens of television shows. The man is not a fashion designer; he is a costumer and an artist. His original designs have become the trademark of true American style.

He is Manuel.
