CHRISTIAN JOY INFACTUATION

I have had a complete infactuation with designer Christian Joy for years, ever since I discovered it was her who was responsible for most of Karen O's on stage costumes (Karen O being the singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's if you don't know). Joy creates amazing, outlandish one off garments that are truly brought to life by Karen's wild stage persona. I'm pretty much in love with everything she has created so will try to keep the images to a minimum, though they are ALL incredible...
Joy flits between an array of themes, sometimes incorporating several in to one costume...glam rock/tribal/dominatrix/new romantic have all been touched on. And to prove that Ms Joy is no one trick pony, she has also created some more 'wearable' pieces such as the collection 'WHEN I WANT YOU IN THE NIGHT' showcased in NYC, which included graphic print tribal/african pattern inspired vests...
