Brighton - Since 1985
Brighton was founded in 1985 in California by Terri and Jerry Kohl. The name comes from men's belts that the married couple were selling to retail stores. Terri and Jerry saw that these retail stores had a small women's section and in 1990 started making and supplying women's belts to these retailers. In 1993, Brighton debuted its handbag line, and customers could accessorize their handbags and belts. As the company grew, more items were debuted to have its customers accessorize, and the company catered mostly towards women. In 1995, the footwear line debuted and the company was a runaway success. Today, Brighton has over 160 stores, and is heavily invested in charities. To this day, Terri and Jerry are growing their business and living their dream.
