About the designer.
Fashion designer Richard Beckel was introduced to couture techniques at the world-class design institute Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne in France. Also a graduate of New York’s Parson’s School of Design, Beckel was one of a select few designers chosen for both Parson’s gallery exhibition and their annual spring runway show. He continued to distinguish himself by winning the first Minneapolis Macy’s Distinction in Design competition. He accomplished all of this while working in corporate America, living his design passion after hours. Richard is excited to bring his couture skills, impeccable eye for design, and passion for people to clients who seek the incomparable experience of working directly with a designer for custom and semi-custom fashion.
