Jean-Charles de Castelbajac (JC/DC)

Since the age of 20, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has designed original clothing that encourages an aesthetic way of life. Colorful and fun; his designs reflect a passion for art and nature.

He defies fashion standards with sportswear that does not forget a spirit of elegance: hijacking materials such as blankets, floor cloths, and ace bandages combined with basic colors or pursuing co-operative endeavours with artists to design his famed Painting-Dresses.

The designer also makes home furnishings, reviving traditional furnishings (such as the Chesterfield sofa and the Medaillon style chair) with the colors. A line of carpets, light fittings, porcelain and household linen also reflect the Castelbajac style.
As well as his imaginative clothing collections the designer creates home furnishings and has designed a watch inspired by the childhood favorite, Lego.

He has designed for:
-Lady Gaga
-Sarah Jessica Parker
-Charlie's Angels
-All the clothing for the Mass that Pope Jean Paul II and 5,500 clerics held on the occasion of World Youth Meeting in Paris 1997.
