He established his own label in 1994 in Los Angeles, which was picked up by Barneys in 1999, and in 2002 the CFDA awarded him with a Perry Ellis Award for emerging talent. In 2007, he won a Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award. Owens now works out of Paris. His designs are known for their modern, edgy, "grunge meets glamour" aesthetic.
