Anyone who knows a bit about fashion heard about Christian Audigier clothing,they will likely start talking about trucker caps and Von Dutch. They will probably mention Ed Hardy and tattoos. They might bring up some of the major celebrities who frequently wear his designs-celebrities like Madonna, David Beckham, Shakira, and Lady Gaga. Photographs of stars wearing Audigier's crystal-studded sweatshirts, Ed Hardy tattooed t-shirts, and other distinctive creations can be seen everyday online and in magazines.
Audigier is quite a big fish in the big pond of fashion-nearly everyone knows of his clothing. Currently, Audigier has seven very successful, well-established clothing lines: Ed Hardy,Christian Audigier,Crystal Rock, SMET,and Paco Chicano. Each of Christian Audigier's clothing lines is unique, and each has helped to build the Christian Audigier clothing brand into one of the biggest of the fashion world.
Audigier wasn't an immediate star in the fashion world, though. He gained a lot of his know-how from working first with several designer jean companies. When Audigier was younger, he dreamed of being a rock-and-roll star; so, he designed a denim collection inspired by the Rolling Stones. An executive at 'MacKeen Jeans' took notice of his collection, and that began Audigier's career in denim. From there, he went on to work with 'Diesel,' 'Bisou Bisou,' 'American Outfitters,' 'Fiorucci,' and 'Levi's.' However, he didn't just work at these companies-he was incredibly valuable to them, becoming one of the leading forces in design at each. This led to him gaining the nickname of "The King of Jeans." His experience with jeans and denim is evident in a great number of the Christian Audigier clothes designs that are being sold today.
Once he tired of working with denim, Audigier began working with the company called Von Dutch. The trucker hats he developed and designed are widely believed to have put Von Dutch on the fashion map. Now, Christian Audigier clothing lines still sell hats; however, they are different from the Von Dutch trucker hats. The hats now sold are intricately embroidered with Ed Hardy tattoo designs. The creations are much like those that are on Audigier's other items of clothing, and they include designs of panthers, hearts, skulls and crossbones, cannabis leaves, Christian Audigier monograms, and other original conceptions.
When Audigier left Von Dutch, he wanted to design a line based around tattoos. After a Google search for "famous tattoo artist" led him to Don Ed Hardy, the rest is history. Audigier formed a partnership with Hardy, named the line 'Ed Hardy Clothes,' and placed Hardy's exquisitely intricate tattooed designs on t-shirts, hoodies, and other clothing items. These Christian Audigier clothing items continue to be some of the most popular sellers among all of Audigier's pieces.
Not many clothing lines can say that they appeal to men and women of nearly any age; however, Christian Audigier can certainly say that about his clothing lines. Celebrities as well as people among all walks of life enjoy wearing his pieces. Christian Audigier clothing is not just about garments-it is about culture.
