Brian Swift
Technology Residency

Brian Swift is a menswear designer who was born and raised in NYC, though he considers the internet his current home.

He graduated from Parsons in 2018 with a BFA in menswear design.

Upon graduating, Swift launched Alacritous: a queer nightlife label reinvigorating clothing and accessories for the internet age. Alacritous draws inspiration from emerging technologies, memes, and sci-fi films to yield collections that are eclectic, reflective and remixable. Past collections have synthesized digital techniques with exquisite handcraft. This has resulted in unlikely pairings, such as machine knits with crystal pavé, algorithmic textile prints and CNC-cut vinyl denim appliqués.

He has yet to turn himself into an NFT.
