You can pretty much attribute any and all of Lady Gaga's most recent and more refined outfit choices to this man.

The Texas-born stylist-turned-designer, although known for his incredible Gaga creations (yes, he's responsible for her epic Bowie tribute looks), is now making a name for himself in the space of classic and timeless pieces for women. His designs cater to those who aren't afraid to spend money on things that will last a lifetime—because, well, perfectly tailored garments will never go out of style.

Celebs like Kristen Wiig and Kate Hudson are also big advocates of the designer. They've recently been spotted wearing looks from his latest collection.

For everything else you should know about him (because his show is tonight and we're really excited for it), read on.

From the Beginning: He got his start as a stylist assistant to Nicola Formichetti (Lady Gaga's former stylist and Diesel's creative director).

Double Agent: On top of styling (for major publications like Elle and V Magazine) and designing, he's also been Fashion Director of Haus of Gaga since 2012.

Celeb Army: It includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Zendaya, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lawrence, Uma Thurman and many others.

Fresh On the Scene: He debuted his first collection just last season! The runway show took place at the famous Mr. Chow restaurant in New York City.

The Vision: "The goal for me has always been to start a young, true American luxury brand that lives on," said the designer, "that my children can have, my grandchildren can have."

Designer Buds: He and Alexander Wang are actually friends and have been now for about two years (thanks to an introduction from Gaga). 

He's a Self-Made Man: The line was solely funded by himself. He waited until he could afford it to start designing.
