Who is Troy Arnold?

Troy Hul Arnold is an artist and designer based in East Harlem, New York City. He grew up in Brooklyn.

Speaking in Making the Cut episode 3 about growing up, Troy said:

When I was a kid, my mom, she was a housekeeper for a few very wealthy families. I would always go with my mom to her different jobs. So they would give us hand-me-downs of what their kids would wear and from that I learned about labels, fashion brands. From that moment I knew that fashion was my path.

Troy is also a professor at Parsons School of Design. He teaches a variety of classes there to support his namesake brand.
