Designer Profile - Rick Owens

Rick Owens clothing is defined by understated glamour. Black and white Hollywood inspirations conspire with goth darkness in a style that has been referred to as "glunge" - a hybrid of glamour and grunge.

Originally from California, Rick Owens got into the fashion industry through cutting copies of designer patterns. His namesake line has been in production since 1994. He also designs furniture, and is artistic director for the French fur line "Revillon." Owens now creates his conceptual lines from Paris, where he lives with his wife and muse Michèle Lamy.
