Chicago designer Gary Gonzalez has been designing upscale, womenswear for 30 years. His work was featured in 2012 by Next Fashion Chicago, where his innovative designs received praise. His work is informed by the death of his brother, who died of AIDS in 1995 and whose final request was that he make a shirt for him to be buried in. Gonzalez’s emotional approach to fashion is an important part of his process, and it shows in the stunning work he creates.
