Kenneth Cole is an American designer, social activist, and visionary who believes business and philanthropy are interdependent. His global company, Kenneth Cole Productions, creates modern and functional clothing, shoes, and accessories.

A business that began over 30 years ago out of the back of a 40-foot trailer, Kenneth Cole Productions is one of the most widely revered and consistently focused fashion companies.

Sometimes ironic and irreverent but always socially conscious and relevant, Cole's advertising has touched on everything from gun safety and homelessness to gay rights and freedom of speech. He believes that "To be aware is more important than what you wear" and abides by two mantras: "What we stand for is more important than what we stand in" and "Look good, for good."

Kenneth Cole continues to leverage his passion and unique brand platform to make a meaningful impact on people's wardrobes, as well as communities in need.

He will be speaking at iCONIC:DC on November 11, 2015. Register today.
