The inspiration for creating a line of luxury hangers stemmed from Kirby Allison’s original career path as an investment banker. While working at his first job out of college, he commonly heard the complaint that there wasn’t a product on the market to fill the need for luxury suit hangers. Kirby and a group of other interested parties collaborated on StyleForum to design and place the first order of luxury hangers, aptly dubbed “The Hanger Project”. The first order was so well received that there was a second and third order placed to meet the demand.
After seeing how popular the hangers were, Kirby realized the opportunity in creating a product to fill the hole in the market. Thus in 2007, Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project was born. Years later, the company has expanded beyond its original product and created a women’s line of hangers, along with hundreds of other luxury accessories.
