Whether it s Beyonce s wild blue jacket, Rihanna in a Donald Duck dress, or outfit queen Lady Gaga in a jacket with sewn-on Kermit the Frog puppets, they have all worn his creations and made them famous. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is a designer who knows how to dress women with courage and creativity. And for his somewhat unorthodox tastes, he has been nicknamed King of the Unconventional. After developing a collection for his mother s fashion house in 1968, he started his own label in 1978. Since then, he has launched countless successful collections and struck up partnerships with the most unlikely people. Whether it s robes for the Pope, costumes for the Woody Allen film "Annie Hall," or clothes for TV series such as "Charlie s Angels and Sex and the City" for decades, de Castelbajac has been a style and fashion pioneer. Even better, he has always managed to fuse fashion with art, as evidenced by his partnerships with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Take a look behind the scenes at this fashion legend and learn about how this artist got his start and his ongoing history of success."
