RICHARDANDGRACE IS A UNIFIED EXPRESSION OF CLEAN, GLOBALLY INFORMED DESIGN, ROOTED IN A TRADITIONAL MODERN AESTHETIC. COMPOSED OF CLOTHING, ACCESSORIES AND WORKS OF ART, IT EXPLORES THE IDEA OF HOW WE CAN BE DRAWN TOGETHER THROUGH VISUAL LANGUAGE. ACROSS THE R&G LINE ARE RECURRING EXPRESSIONS OF CHAOS, A PATTERN THAT COMMUNICATES BOTH UNPREDICTABLE NATURE OF A LIFETIME AS WELL AS ITS LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITY.
Josh Allen is an artist that utilizes Richardandgrace as a platform to communicate ideas between fashion, furniture and philanthropy. Born and raised in Houston Texas, Allen was surrounded by entrepreneurship, art and hip-hop. Graduating with a degree in fashion / merchandising undergrad business at Johnson & Wales University (2016), he began working industry jobs in New York city soon afterwards. Josh Allen has traveled to Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Berlin, Shanghai and shares time between New York and LA. The inspiration behind his works is rooted from travel and exploring how all bodies of people share the same chaos.
“I’VE BEEN DRAWING THE PATTERN I CALL 'CHAOS' SINCE I WAS A KID. TO ME, IT REPRESENTS HOW EVERYONE GOES THROUGH SOME SORT OF OBSTACLE. UNDERSTANDING THE IDEA THAT WE ALL SHARE THIS EXPERIENCE CAN BRING HUMANITY CLOSER.”
