Designer: Ruffian / Brian Wolk & Claude Morais
Inspirations/style: A juxtaposition between the improvised and the studied – cinema repertoire, European court culture and American iconography – culture clashing with counter culture, classic with cutting edge, punk with princess – they smash archetypes and rebuild slightly askew.
Mr. Wolk’s training: Fashion Design & Costume design – worked in Film, Theatre and Opera; a foundation in his design process.
Mr. Morais’ training: extensive world travel as a model & stylist gave a visual and cultural foundation essential to his design process – studies in fine art painting reflect deep color knowledge.
