Founder Shannon Garcon officially named and opened the House of Comme des Garcons on April 18th, 2008. Shannon and Whitney’s vision was for an organization that stood firm on core values they were taught while being a member of other successful organizations. Standing on faith Shannon became the first member of the House of Comme des Garcons. Keeping in mind the concept that was designed for the house, Shannon began the difficult task of building a family of individuals who shared and supported the vision.
During his search Shannon discovered there was a yearning for an organization that was dissimilar than any of the current houses. Eventually, Kevin ex-Ebony, Jeff ex-Mugler, icons Julian ex- Mugler and Whitney ex-Mugler joined in founding this dynamic new ballroom house. Also a strong supportive force involved in the early development stages of the house was Mike ex-Blanik Mugler. With a strong team in place and membership numbers continuing to rise, the house of Comme des Garcons was officially on the way to success.
The House of Comme des Garcons continues to be recognized today as a thriving ballroom organization with a strong track record of grand prize wins, area dominance in ballroom and a catalogue of members who include some of the most recognizable faces in ballroom. The House of Comme des Garcons in late 2014 took on a new blueprint for the future of the organization and looks forward to countless more victorious years in ballroom.
