American designer Traver Rains surfaced as one of the most recognized figures in the New York fashion scene with his co-founding of the New York Party-Girl Label Heatherette. Traver grew up on a horse ranch in Montana. His love of the west and rugged outdoors has continually inspired him throughout his career as both a clothing designer and fashion photographer. After conceptualizing and designing looks for hundreds of fashion shows and photoshoots in NYC, Traver headed back west to focus on photography. “I love fashion still, but it’s more interesting to design a look specifically for an image-like a character in a short story.” Whether the subject is celebrity, musician or model, the subtext story line in his images are where Traver finds much of his inspiration.
