Tony Wloch, B.F.A. Fashion Design, was born in Durham, North Carolina and grew up in San Diego, California. While at Academy of Art University, Tony has worked as a designer for Betabrand, as a design assistant for both Farm Tactics and CC Couture, and has interned as a designer for Band of Outsiders. For his collection, Tony juxtaposed luxury with function—creating chic garments out of blue-collar fabrics. Tony used recycled jeans and shirts to create patchwork accent fabrics, which are used alongside chambray and linen.
