Designer Profile: Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

JC/DC is the Andy Warhol of the fashion industry. There is no doubt about the POP factor he's maintained over the years. I absolutely adore everything by him.

Now that the store in London's Conduit street has closed down, it was one my favorite spaces. Two floors of heaven, the launch of the new online store is something to celebrate http://jcdcstore.com/, this is good news for people across Europe.

I remember my first love experience with Castelbajac, a yellow sequined dress on a mannequin with a big smiley face. I turned to my best friend and said "I could get married in that." Then of course French singer Yelle was seen in that dress and it was featured in Ugly Betty, alongside with a lot of other JC/DC dresses...





I started to take all my friends to the JC/DC store and one friend of mine was very close to buying the credit card dress, but was afraid that she would give the wrong impression...



Castelbajac never ceases to impress, be it with Mickey Mouse shoes or with a stunning sequined dress. The homewear is also quite interesting, rugs, plates with sayings and colorful graphic designs on them.

So now one of our favorites is available online and you can own a playful fun JC/DC item too in no time...

Check out this seasons South Park collection.
