When growing up in Toronto, Nicolas Andreas Taralis had an interest towards art and design from a young age. With a passion and clear determination to work in a creative field, he soon found himself in the world of fashion.
After studying at Parsons in New York for two years, however, he realized that his dreams and future were much further away. Taralis has come a long way since hopping on a plane to Europe – after studying and working with some of the greatest minds in mens fashion, he has worked with Dior Homme and Cerruti, created his own label, worked on numerous projects around the world and generated somewhat of a cult following for his renowned style. Scoute talked to the designer, who recently made the decision to continue his own line in the form of a mens collection for spring 2009.
