Since Wilson began his career in NYC working as a freelance fashion embroidery designer, his artwork has strong ties to the fashion industry and luxury brands. His work often incorporates and transforms fabrics like Hermès, Chanel, and Oscar de la Renta. As he uses these fashion fabrics as raw materials in his practice, an array of designer boxes soon accumulated in the studio... 

From this, the series Luxury by Stephen Wilson was born, featuring one-of-kind pieces of art using found objects like actual designer boxes and bags. Each piece is completely unique and origial, using mixed techniques such as embroidery, quilting, and assemblage before embellishing it with handmade and surprising elements. Whether offering a critique on materialism, a commentary on contemporary culture, or relaying the emotion of luxury itself, the result is so stunning - a box will never be simply a box again.
