Brian Swift is a menswear designer and photographer, who was born and raised in New York City, though he considers the internet his current home. When he’s not working on new designs, he can usually be found playing games or reading books.

His techno-optimistic universe is garish, glamorous and unnavigable without color. He can most frequently be seen taking selfies, while snickering at cute animal videos. He started designing clothing and accessories in 2010. This practice has culminated in the creation of his label, Alacritous, a queer nightlife label making clothing and accessories for the internet age.

He graduated from Parsons School of Design in 2018 with a BFA in fashion design, focusing on menswear. His thesis collection, Blockchainizer, was sponsored by Swarovski. The Blockchainizer collection was featured in Milk and IRK, alongside interviews with the designer. His future goals include expanding Alacritous and having a beautiful Pomeranian family.
