Christian Joy

Christian Joy is a designer living in Brooklyn. With no formal training in fashion design, she started creating one of a kind hand-painted/hand-sewn t-shirts and re-designing old prom dresses. She met Karen O in 2001 and the aspiring singer soon became her favorite model. As the Yeah Yeah Yeahs began playing shows Joy designed a fresh outfit for each occasion. This video directed by Claire CarrĂ© is a little psychedelic peek into Joy’s polychromatic planet.

And here are a couple of the costumes that Christian has designed for Karen O.
