Nomi Ruiz first captured the public’s attention with her collaborations on Hercules & Love Affair’s beloved debut album and fronting their original live band. She is one of the stars of Charles Atlas and Antony’s film ‘Turning’ and was projected nightly on the screens of Times Square this past December as part of a collaboration between the filmmakers and Times Square Arts. In 2013, Ruiz created an installation at New York’s Clocktower Gallery to launch her Borough Gypsy album and had her work exhibited alongside Patti Smith’s. She has been a Mugler muse and starred in one of their campaign films that also featured her music. Dior Homme has recently booked her for performances in China and their show at Paris men’s fashion week this month.
