We are thrilled to welcome celebrated designer Gary Graham to the WKC Young People’s Theater Arts Team!

The arts have figured prominently in Gary Graham’s trajectory as a designer. With a background in costume design, Graham has been active in many theatrical projects. In 1997, he designed textiles and assisted Julie Taymor on the costumes for the much acclaimed The Lion King. Graham also worked with costume designer Jacqueline West on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The prominent composer Meredith Monk wears Graham exclusively and continues to collaborate with him. In 2008, his quilted coat was included in the Phoenix Art Museum’s 2009 Medalism: Fashion’s Romance with the Middle Ages. In 2014, Graham participated in the American Folk Art Museum’s “Folk Couture: Fashion and Folk Art.” His custom-made jacquard ensemble was featured on Vogue.com.

After twenty years in New York City, Graham’s atelier has relocated to Franklin, NY as Gary Graham422. GaryGraham422 is a site-specific project that allows space, history, and community to determine textile production and intimate collections. Each small run will center on narratives that combine real stories with fictional characters to blur distinctions between past, present, and future in mysterious ways. All garments will be made on-site and in the United States, using vintage and antique textiles as well as jacquards and wovens from domestic mills. As studio, storefront, film studio and a living space, GaryGraham422 is a structural and conceptual reincarnation of the Gary Graham brand.
