Born in New Jersey, Dean DiCriscio was fascinated by fashion and the understanding of the creation, evolution, and history of Suburbia from a young age. During his studies in Fashion Design at Parsons School of Design, he naturally began to style shoots with his friends and started dressing them for events, which organically led to a career as an Artist and Stylist. Alongside his styling work, Dean works across a variety of mediums including creative direction, design and multimedia projects.
Rather then being attracted to the element of luxury, Dean draws inspiration from the complicated psychology behind his work. He has developed a way of dressing that is constantly evolving by letting his work reflect who he is and demonstrating his inquisitive nature. Upon moving to New York and understanding how premeditated things around us are, Dean perfected a way of dressing people that could be regarded as quite comical and tongue in cheek. He has since built a reputation for his work as nuanced, introspective, balanced, yet unbalanced and confrontational.
The individuality in his work has especially been supported by photographer Petra Collins. They have built a large body of work through a natural connection in their vision and many collaborations.
Dean has been featured in editorials such as M Le Monde, Vogue Italia, Vman, “OMG I’m Being Killed” and Baron Magazine. His commercial clients include Helmut Lang, UZ Beauty, Century 21 and Telfar.
