Born in Brooklyn, New York, Designer Raun LaRose credits his mother for his aspirations in becoming a designer. LaRose grew up watching his seamstress mother design high-end womenswear. Later, LaRose would take what he learned from his mother regarding fashion, fabrics, and designing and eventually enroll in FIT where he studied menswear. However, before enrolling in FIT, LaRose spent one year in the Art Institute of NYC studying womenswear.
Sponsored by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), La Rose debuted his first menswear collection during the Fall 2017 New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Yesterday, Larose’s Spring 2018 New York Fashion Week: Men’s collection entitled “System Down” continued to define his avarde garde designs. LaRose known for his futuristic designs brought back much of what we loved such as the wide leg pants, but also adding new elements by redefining silhouettes, adding prints, and tech fabrics.
