Susan Cianciolo puts love into everything she creates. Long recognized for her clothing line, Run, Cianciolo's boundless creativity is evident throughout her multifaceted practice, which includes designing books, theatre costumes, films and forms of ephemera that defy the categorizations of fashion, craft and art. Appreciation for Cianciolo's tender sensibilities has been celebrated with recent exhibitions at Bridget Donahue Gallery in New York, Overduin & Co. in Los Angeles and the South London Gallery. Her work ushers our understanding of clothing away from the flighty world of trends and towards an awareness of spirituality and imagination.
Susan Cianciolo (born 1969 in Rhode Island) is a New York based fashion designer and artist. Cianciolo began her career in 1995 after graduating from Parson's School of Design, by collaborating with Kim Gordon on the X-Girl clothing line, while around the same time starting her own Run collection—mixing clothing with film and performance art—which for 10 years involved the collaboration of some of New York's leading artists and musicians.
Susan Cianciolo has been included in i-D's Fashion Now book, among 150 of the most important designers of our times, and she has been one of the pioneers in using eco friendly materials in her collections. Her illustrations and paintings have also been exhibited worldwide in several galleries and museums. <
