Nicolas Andreas Taralis
Nicolas Andreas Taralis grew up in Toronto. He studied at Parsons School of Design in New York as well as at the University of Applied Arts Vienna under Helmut Lang. From 1997 to 1999 he ran his first label, ENDE NEU, in Vienna. In 2000 he moved to Paris and worked for Dior Homme, where as assistant to Hedi Slimane he was in charge of the accessories line, and in 2006 he worked for Cerrutti. Since 2004 he has regularly shown the collections of his self-titled label in Paris.
In an interview with scoute magazine he described his own style as follows: I really believe in the here and now, I'm not interested in looking back, or doing historical or trendy things. It's very graphic, linear, sober. No big narrative and no nostalgia, just now.
