Californian designer Rick Owens has become famous for his avant-garde designs that fuse luxury style with a rock and roll attitude. Launching his eponymous label in 1994, Owens draws inspiration from 1970's couture, blending it with a "glamour-meets-grunge" style to create a nonchalant collection of luxe leather jackets, edgy dresses and heavily tailored separates. Owen's rock-inspired designs have wowed the fashion crowds, showcasing a stripped-back, dusty-hued colour palette and exposed fabrics that suggest a carefree attitude to high fashion. Look to Rick Owens' collection of directional dresses for a dramatic and dark look. Deconstructed shapes with clever draping and loose silhouettes create a high-fashion edge with a nonchalant, rock star attitude.
