It is in 1993 that the Californian Rick Owens launched a brand under his name. A graduate of the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, he sold his first creations in the most vanguard shop of the City of Angels, “Charles Gallay”. In 2001, he transferred his production in Italy, and a year later, with the support of Vogue USA, the young designer was able to realise his first show. Since then, the brand Rick Owens began a meteoric rise, to the point of establishing itself as one of the biggest names in the alternative fashion.
