About FUBU

FOR US, BY US… FOREVER What started as a “bouquet of hats” made by John Daymond and close friends in Hollis, Queens have made FUBU partners the leaders of one of the most successful lifestyle brands of all time and the creators of an entire class of marketing innovations that are now considered essential in the industry. The first collection consisted of a small line of tops and hats with the FUBU logo. In 1995, an extensive line of sportswear was designed and produced by FUBU, using raw materials imported from all over the world. With the success of the collection, distributors and investors came calling. At its peak in 1998, FUBU grossed over $350 million in annual global sales. Over the next two decades, FUBU received several accolades for its entrepreneurial achievements. These include two Congressional Awards, two NAACP Awards, the Pratt Institute Award, the Christopher Wallace Award, the Online Hip Hop Award and an Honorary Citation from the President of Queens Borough. To date, more than 5,000 stores offer the FUBU collection and more than $6 billion in merchandise was sold at retail.
