About the artist

Kelsey Tucker (age 26) was born and raised in Michigan. She attended Wayne State University and graduated in 2019 with a BFA in Fashion Design and a Minor in Textile Design. Upon gradutating, Kelsey went to Los Angeles to work for Vera Wang. While there, Kelsey noticed that the same intricate techniques and artistry used to craft luxury, couture dresses were not also applied to ready to wear fashion. This disconnect inspired Kelsey to start her career as an artist within the fashion industry by starting her own brand, Deviate. Through her designs, Kelsey is pushing the boundaries of art as fashion by emphasizing textile innovation and artistry.

Kelsey's mission as an artist is to uplift her community in Detroit through the lens of fashion as art.
