TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — KGUN9 first introduced you to Ian Urquhart, the owner of Ignis Clothing, back in February 2023 for Black History Month. Today, we share our follow up interview with the midtown designer who was making clothes for the runway out of his garage.
From the Old Pueblo to the Big Apple, Urquhart took his Tucson clothing brand to the runway at New York Fashion Week earlier this month. His traveling crew of about 15 people– models, hair stylists, makeup artists and photographers were all from Tucson.
Urquhart was able to walk out on the runway with his models after the show to soak in what he had just accomplished.
“I was just planning on walking out and just saying thank you. Then something happened where I just felt the music and I started dancing down the runway. Oh my gosh, it was honestly a really fun moment
