Founder & Creative Director
David Volante is that unique visionary who comes along only once in a while. From an early age he had his own ideas of how things should be and who he was. Coming form a LARPing background, he felt the importance of a costume that is equal parts practical, durable, and badass looking. he studied character design and 3D animation in college and has applied that experience to create character-driven fashion. From a technical standpoint, David is exceptional. He has taught himself just about everything he does, from sewing to pattern work. His talent and eye for style is the backbone of Volante Design.
In his spare time, he draws, plays video games (this is considered "research" at Volante Design), and keeps up with his friends. When asked about favorite games, the first five that come to mind are Metal Gear Rising, Burnout Paradise, Horizon Zero Dawn, Hollow Knight, and Shadow of the Colossus. Take from that what you will.
