Ian is a self-taught designer and artist working in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. He has been a full-time designer for nearly a decade, putting out seasonal ready to wear collections as well as custom work for women in his home of Chicago and throughout the U.S. Minimal silhouettes with an emphasis on fabrics and construction mark his style in past collections. However, Ian is very excited to showcase this coming collection and surprise guests and industry professionals with a bolder take on embellishments and textures. On the rare off day, you can find Ian with friends by the lake, laughing over cocktails, or cooking. Ian’s company, AgainstAllOdds, works closely with charities and feels strongly about giving back to the community locally and not so locally. Ian hopes you enjoy the show and is excited to be a part of Chicago’s amazing and diverse fashion community.
