Bradford and Bryan Manning are brothers, and the co-founders of Two Blind Brothers, a cause-driven fashion company on a mission to cure blindness. The company makes luxury casual wear that is focused on the sense of touch, and donates 100% of its profits to fund research to find a cure for retinal eye disease.
Prior to launching Two Blind Brothers, Bradford worked in investment management, and Bryan worked in data sales — both in New York City, where they both still reside. Both Bradford and Bryan grew up in Charlottesville, VA and both brothers graduated from the University of Virginia in 2007 and 2013, respectively.
Bradford and Bryan will be assisting with “Textiles, Sewing and Fashion Design for Accessibility” during Friday’s schedule of activities.
Bradford & Bryan Manning will share anecdotes of the textile and fashion entrepreneurial culture and how they’ve perfected a space where fashion meets comfort.
