      Books/articles published:
      Abboud has been accorded numerous honors including the distinction of being the only designer to have received the coveted Menswear Designer of the Year two years in a row (1989 and 1990) from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Especially meaningful to Abboud was the Special Achievement Award from The Neckwear Association of America, which he received in May 1994. This is presented only when the association feels an individual’s work has changed the face of the industry. In the association’s prior history, only two other designers had been similarly honored, Ralph Lauren and Bill Blass.
      Other awards and honors include The Cutty Sark Award for Most Promising Menswear Designer (1988), his first Woolmark Award for Distinguished Fashion (1989) and again in March of 1993. Soon after, Abboud was the honored guest of the Japanese Government in conjunction with the Association of Total Fashion, introducing the brand to the Japanese public with a two week tour and culminating with a fashion show. In 1995, Abboud was honored for Excellence in American Design by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

      Educational background:
      Abboud studied comparative literature at the University of Massachusetts. Shortly after, he went on to attend the Sorbonne in Paris, where he grew to love the sophisticated polish of European style.
