ONCH Creating wearable art, memories and smiles since 2004

LA based Onch is the creative force behind the "ONCH" brand (previously known as Onch Movement), designing 'wearable art' for a discerning VIP client list that includes Kate Moss, Kim Kardashian, and Nicki Minaj, who famously rocked her Onch Rainbow Ice Cream Cone Necklace to accept the VMA for Best Rapper of the Year, and introduced the Pink Fried Chicken Wing Necklace at the iHeart Radio concert. ONCH's career originally kicked off back when supermodel Moss was spotted out & about wearing his Bloody Razor Blade Necklace in LA, before the designer was even old enough to buy booze legally. Following that illustrious intro, the fresh-faced fashion phenom was asked to provide the accessories for Heatherette’s LA Fashion Week show. He subsequently launched his long term relationship with cult fave Hello Kitty, which culminated in his recent role as designer for the brand’s first collection at Forever21, The Hello Kitty Forever jewelry collection. Hasbro has also enlisted the edgy designer to bring some of their most beloved brands to life, choosing him for their very first jewelry collabos for Mr. Potato Head & My Little Pony, not to mention asking ONCH to create a 30 inch, not-so 'Little Pony,' currently touring the world at different toy conventions. The trend-setter whose work was even featured in a bio-technology textbook and Italian Vogue has also made headlines for his more daring & unique designs, from his "Meat-Lace" meat necklace which was featured by the NY Post, LA Times, Huffington Post, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and In Touch. In 2015 ONCH brand launched successful collaborations with Dreamworks Animation, Sanrio, Pokemon and Delias. Summer 2016 ONCH was selected by LAPRIDE as the featured artist to create public art for the main instagrammable moment. Due to the huge success, in fall FORD automotive teamed up with ONCH to launch their new car by creating a tiny home to create a social media buzz.
