A man who can imagine a great wall dress, a stained glass window top, or shark pumps in a country where soberty is king, a designer who brings pop colors in a world of beige-taupe-grey is already a fantastic artist. But when he adds rock and pop referencies to his creations, he becomes my heroe.
His inspiration, he finds it mostly in music and especially rock that he loves. He always creates with a musical background and always surches for upcoming artists. His playlist today ? Brian Van 3000 a californian band that he was listening when I arrieved :
He is also a huge fan of In My Spaceship of Jan Turkenburg
This excessive artist loves upon everything dress singers and performers, live his clothes are in their element !
JC de Castelbajac dress a lot of singers as Beth Dito, Mia and even Lady Gaga. I feel really small.
As soon as he saw me he had an idea : Dress me withe Beyonce's jacket from Telephone, Lady Gaga video clip...
The jacket is really heavy but I'm so happy I could jump !
And soon he arrives with the shoes, I am Cinderella ! And the shoes fit me perfectly !
He explains to me that each of the clothes he designs has a story. This jacket makes reference to his family where there is a lot of warlords but also to his fascination about sailors. The image printed on the jacket is his face as a sailor because he would have loved being one. The ornaments reprensents pirate's treasure.
Turned into Gagaby one of my favourite designers, a real dream !
And speaking about magic, here he is again with a new idea : Make me wear his favourite dress from his winter 2011 collection : the Bambi dress.
I love Bambi and at the show I noticed the Bambi shoes, here they are, I will have the total look :
His says that the dress looks as if it was made for me. Now I hesitate between runing away with the dress and hidding under the curtains...
After the interview, he made me a private visit of his office. He explained me how his son, an artist also, paint and work his art projetcts. He embroides guns on a canevas then he shoots... "He has a darker vision than me" indeed.
I really catch his point when he shows me, laughting, his new short movie "Hôtel Kittyfornia", a movie about Hello Kitty 10 years anniversary already a myth in Japan.
Then he tells me he is web addict, he is on Facebook and on Twitter
But already someone is calling him, he has an appointment with the minister...
If only I was a famous singer, maybe he would have dressed me everyday ? You know someone that can give accelerated music classes ?
