Merrill and Forbes was established in 1997 by Abdul Mannan. The Mannan family has been involved in the textile and ready made garments industry in South and Southeast Asia for over 40 years. Its New York operations was a result of designers seeking closer correspondence with the manufacturing side of the supply chain. In 2014, his daughter, Tajrina decided to pivot business strategy and reintroduce the brand as Merrill + Forbes, adding a critical element of the value proposition, in-house design. Instead of manufacturing for globally recognized retailers, her passion for arts and awareness of trends led to an awakening.

With a sophisticated foundation and an eye for detail, Merrill+Forbes now aspires to deliver functional high fashion for the risk takers of the future. Engineered with love and innovative fabrics, each M+F garment carries messages of positivity.
