Who is Ray Petri?

Ray Petri was a fashion stylist and creator of the fashion house, Buffalo.

Born Ray Petrie in Dundee, Scotland, Petri moved to Brisbane, Australia with his family at age 15. In 1969, feeling Australia was too provincial, he moved to London where he ran a jewellery booth at the Camden Street antiques market. Between 1983 and 1989, Petri worked freelance with lifestyle magazines The Face, i-D and Arena. He collaborated with photographers Jamie Morgan, Martin Brading, Roger Charity, Marc Lebon and Norman Watson to evolve the Buffalo Boy series of fashion spreads.

In 1989, Petri died of AIDS at age 41.
