Luxury retail store Lessons is known for stocking some of the world’s most sought after contemporary labels, including Acne, Marni, Versace, Raf Simons and more.
Each year, in its Perth and Ottawa locations, it hosts a Meet the Designers series featuring influential designers. The 2019 series kicks off on April 5 with LA-based designer Rhuigi Villasenor, who is the founder and director of streetwear label Rhude.
The 25-year-old also serves as creative director at Puma, and his garments are made in LA using fine fabrics from Italy and Japan. All his T-shirts are treated by hand and dyed in the Californian sun.
Villasenor will take part in an in-store Q&A from 3pm to 4pm and fashion and design students, in particular, are encouraged to attend and submit questions.
He will also be designing a new product especially for Lesson that will be released at cocktail event in the evening. Drinks are complementary and the general public is welcome from 8pm to 9pm.
