Richard Ruiz and I have been friends for more than a decade. We met in Paris when we were both attending Parsons Paris, it was love at first sight, sort of. We would stay up all night getting our work done for school and then squeeze into my twin bed and smoke cigarettes until it was time to go. Oh Paris, those were the days!
Richard is so super talented. His line, Richard Ruiz, is strong and poetic at the same time. His inspiration for Fall 2009 was a vision of an “urban nomadic tribe.” He was inspired for his collection when he saw two Masai tribesmen walking in Brooklyn in their traditional wardrobe.
