Hutson was founded in New York City in early 2009 by husband and wife duo Swaim and Christina Hutson, former designers of the men's and women's label Obedient Sons and Daughters.

Swaim and Christina met through mutual friends in 2003. Originally from North Carolina, Swaim received his B.A. in 1994 and moved to California to pursue his career in fashion. Christina, originally from Pennsylvania, moved to New York where Swaim and Christina met. They then began to work together in 2006 when they relaunched the CFDA nominated Obedient Sons. They have since married and have two children, Lowe and Valentine Hutson.

All Hutson pieces are handmade in New York City. Swaim and Christina share an artistic vision and commitment to sharp tailoring, craftsmanship and quality.
