Ruins designer opens new boutique and studio space
Fans of West Queen West's Ruins were sad to hear of its closing a few short months ago. Happily, designer Michael Joseph Thomas is now devoting himself to his eponymous brand, and has switched locations with vintage shop Chosen. You'll now find his men's and women's clothing (along with his two cats) in an almost gothic retail space just upstairs from his previous location, where he also has an open studio.
