Italian fashion designer Enzo Fusco is the owner of Blauer USA—a label that transforms authentic American military designs into full fledged high-fashion apparel. Fascinated by the utilitarian appearance, directed purpose and rugged material of the garments, Fusco identifies military equipment and sportswear as the "beginning of [his] experience in fashion and clothing" and an "influence that has been really important to [his] journey as a creative person."
In recent years, military designs have become ubiquitous and predictable in the fashion industry. However, Bauer USA provides a strong history that is integral to its authenticity and brings up the qualitative appeal of the product. While most brands upcycle military designs, Bauer USA is an original brand and a leading technical supplier of performance garments for the police, the navy, the army, White House special agents, firemen and rangers.
