Tom Binns is a revolutionary, directional artist with a cult following. A pioneer of alchemy with a strong poetic sense and caustic humor, he creates elegant, anti-conformist “object trouves”. Born in Belfast, Ireland, he graduated in 1981 in jewelry design, challenging the norm with luxury adornments influenced by the Dada movement. His collaboration with Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, namely his Punk Couture designs, especially reflect this surrealist embrace. An insatiable desire to create and constantly question the implications of this medium has earned Binns numerous prestigious awards in the realm of fashion and accessories design.
