St. Louis Designer Richard Tao Launches Line At 10denza, Collaborates With Timo Weiland
It’s been quite an eventful few months for St. Louis-based designer Richard Tao, whose line of fashion-forward ties have made an impact from here to New York City.
Tao presented his line this fall to elite guests as a participant in Butik, Saint Louis Fashion Week‘s curated marketplace, making an impact on several of the special guests including designer Timo Weiland, who invited Tao to collaborate for Weiland’s Fall 2015 show that will premiere at New York Fashion Week in February. Tao is crafting five ties for the collection. “Richard’s ties have instantly achieved a prominent place in my wardrobe,” says Weiland. “They strike a perfect balance of dapper and casual, with the delicately frayed edges and thoughtful color blocking.”
Tao’s line has recently been picked up by New York menswear hub By Robert James, and in St. Louis at Lusso and 10denza. Join Tao on Wednesday at 10denza where he will launch the Richard Tao line with fashion lovers, clients and friends from 5:30-8pm at 44 Maryland Plaza in the CWE.
