Rick Owens Designer Clothes, Fashion Rick Owens Designer ClothesSince 1994, California-born Rick Owens has been dazzling the fashion world with his avant-garde take on classically grunge and Goth silhouettes. He began his career small, selling only to an exclusive boutique in Los Angeles, but his work hardly went unnoticed. After a few years of cult success, Owens left the West Coast for Paris to further develop his dark aesthetic. Aside from his eponymous high end collection, Owens also produces the casual diffusion line Lilies, a minimalist range of furniture, and DRKSHDW, a rock and roll-infused denim line. Hallmarks of the designer’s work include abstract prints, draping, and asymmetry.
