Launch My Line: Dean and Dan Caten
Launch My Line Hosts
Canadian twin brothers from Willowdale Ontario, Dean and Dan Caten have operated in the International fashion business since 1984. They moved to New York City in 1983 to attend the Parsons School for Design, and then went on to Italy in 1991. Their new life in Italy resulted in several collaborations with fashion forward brands, and they soon went on to produce their own premiere men’s fashion show, marking the first in a long succession of runway shows that captured the attention of journalists and buyers with their combination of fashion, music and theater.
Thanks to a lucky introduction with Madonna, Dean and Dan were able to leave an unforgettable mark in Hollywood and around the globe. They were commissioned to design 150 outfits both for Madonna as well as her dancers for the 2002 Drowned World Tour and for the video, Don’t Tell Me. Dean and Dan have gone on to continue to seduce Young Hollywood starlets and pop royalty with their pioneering and provocative designs. They have since built significant collaborations throughout the music industry with such A-List talent as Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Usher, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and most recently, Britney Spears’ Circus Tour. In addition to their passion for musical alliances, the DSQUARED2 brand has attracted a devoted following of such celebrities as Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Anne Hathaway, Eva Mendes, Victoria and David Beckham, Shakira, Lenny Kravitz and Orlando Bloom.
