Gareth Pugh was born in 1981, english fashion designer. At the age of 14 he began to work as a costumer designer for the English National Youth Theatre. His first show occurred in 2006 in London Fashion Week. Pugh's trademark is his experimentation with form and volume. He often uses nonsensically shaped, wearable sculptures to distort the human body almost beyond recognition. In his last collection he used balloons to accentuate models' joints and limbs.
