Christian Joy, Karen O's Designer, Gives A Tour Of Her Closet (VIDEO)

Written by Stylelist Blogger Network members Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum of StyleLikeU:

Christian is known for designing stage costumes for Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, beginning with the deconstructed prom dresses she was making when first she started out as a designer. Their collaboration evolved and persists; Christian recalls a seminal moment for herself as an artist on the band's tour for 2003's Fever To Tell. Karen wore a colorful hand-made skeleton suit -- "Kind of Day of the Dead," Christian says -- with lots of embroidery, a three-dimensional heart and arteries. But what excited the designer most was the thirty feet of intestines that could be pulled out by the audience. Christian never stops creating. "I constantly think about it. I dream about it." Everything in her apartment is silk-screened, from the pillows to her linens.

Christian's clean, slicked-back hair and classic red lips make her feel as though she can go a little further out on a limb with her clothing, and reveals the conscious detail with which she approaches everything.
