Born in Australia, Nicholas Bowes began his career in fashion as a model in the mid-1990s but soon cultivated his fashion interests into a screen-printing business. This venture led to designing vintage tees and leather jackets and ultimately creating the brand KRMA Clothing. After exhausting the Australian market, Bowes relocated to Los Angeles in 2006. He expanded his street lux line KRMA to wovens, rock-star leggings, chic leather jackets and developed "Nicholas Bowes," a black-label line for men. With a slew of A-listers, including Alicia Keys, Fergie, Pink, Nina Dobrev and Adrian Grenier, already fans of his line, Bowes hopes to become the next commercially viable brand.
