Since relocating from New York to L.A. last year, Ruffian designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais are continuing to show their love for Hollywood with the launch of a new line called Wolk Morais.

According to a release, the collection — which is designed, sourced and manufactured in L.A. — will debut with a runway show at Hollywood's Kohn Gallery on April 13, marking the one-year anniversary of their move to Hollywood. The runway show will also feature a pre-shop option that will benefit L.A.-based nonprofit The Art of Elysium. Pieces retail from $795 to $4995.

In describing the new line, Wolk told WWD that it's "luxury sportswear with evening elements." The eponymous label will only be shown during the resort and pre-fall season.

Power stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who helped the designers style their spring 2015 runway show in L.A., worked with Wolk and Morais on their new collection.
