Fashion designer, educator, researcher, author. Joshua does it all for the animals.

The name Joshua Katcher may be familiar, and that’s for good reason. Joshua and his fashion line, Brave GentleMan, have been featured in Vogue, Financial Times, GQ, Fashion United, Forbes, People Magazine andcountless others.

As an educator, Joshua has taught at Parsons The New School, LIM and guest lectured internationally on sustainable and ethical fashion. Textile innovation, ethics and the eye of a designer has set Joshua on a path of redefining menswear and masculinity, with Vogue noting, “The full scope of Katcher’s ethical commitment is rather head-spinning, just as it is to gape about his Williamsburg shop, with its complete future-is-now men’s range".

Fashion Animals, Joshua’s debut book, is a critical look at how the fashion industry has exploited animals through history, with stunning and rare imagery and insight. It is a must have for advocates, animal lovers and fashion designers everywhere.
