Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Noah Pica reimagines wardrobes through the lens of his young, queer self. Through his studies at Rhode Island School of Design, Noahxated on the subversion of traditional masculine roles - viewing “menswear” as an opportunity to rede ne and redress people within the context of “masculinity”. He has an eye for the quirky moments in life, and always incorporates silly color stories, witty silhouettes, and unassuming models.
Noah has previously interned at Timo Weiland in New York City and Ortiz Industry, Inc. in Los Angeles. He has a knack for languages, and has studied abroad on two separate occasions - one year in Verona, Italy and a semester in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Fascinated by the intersection between language, communication, and otherness, Noah uses language-learning as a way of understanding complex relationships. This directly led to the conceptual evolution of #1 DAD, where he used the archetypal relationship between fathers and sons as a guide in the development of the collection.
