At 18, in 2017, David Friend first walked the runway for Saint Laurent. This initiation into the world of fashion caused a creative ripple effect -- from becoming Anthony Vaccarello’s must to working as a styling assistant, Friend has worked behind the scenes with some of the world’s best stylists and photographers. Expanding his creative ambitions led to the launch of menswear line Worstok with design partner Rudy Grazziani. Debuting in 2018, the L.A. based brand recently showed for the first time in both Paris and New York. Representing their disparate upbringings, Worstok weaves personal history into its aesthetic.
