Designer of the Day…Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

I’ve got a fun designer I wanted to feature today – the amazing conceptual Jean-Charles de Castelbajac – also known as JC/DC. You all already know how much I love concept designers, so I’m really excited to share the awesomness that is JC/DC. This French designer is known for his “object dresses” that have featured everyone from Pikachu, Princess Diana, Andy Warhol, Michael Jackson, and Snoopy. He’s designed a line for MaxMara and he also has costumed concerts, tv shows, and musicals.

Besides fashion, JC/DC also has his hands in other design fields like jewelry and tableware. He’s also been known to do web design, interior design, and art installations. I’m most drawn to his fashion lines though because they speak to the costumer in me. I love designers that aren’t focused on selling to the masses. JC/DC creates art for only the fiercest to wear and I so love him for that…I would wear half of his stuff to events!
