He is just 20 years old, but his name is already iconic in the fashion industry. With clients ranging from Rankin to Nicola Formichetti or Lady Gaga, Elliot Joseph Rentz is considered the next Alexander McQueen.
He is a rebel of the industry and a creative genius, refusing to study fashion in a school or to do men’s wear.
His work has been featured in famous publications like: Dazed, Schon, YOU Magazine or Bullett Magazine.
“There’s always a character behind each collection I do, that’s how I start, and they’re always alien-like women. So until I can find a woman who’s like, eight foot tall and has eyes on the side of her head, I’ll put them in masks. I think there’s something sexy about concealing the identity of a woman, and I always like my characters to look a bit more…unrealistic”, stated Rent in an interview published in Out Magazine.
