Nearly everyone has heard of Christian Audigier these days. After all, who hasn’t seen a celebrity wearing one of those Von Dutch trucker hats? Stars are photographed on a daily basis wearing Christian Audigier clothing. People like Marilyn Manson, Jaime Fox, Mariah Carey, Snoop Dog, and Missy Elliot love to wear his Ed Hardy tattooed hoodies and t-shirts. Christian Audigier has certainly developed quite a following-both among celebrities and among everyone else.
Audigier has several unique fashion lines-not just one. In fact, he has a total of seven different clothing lines–‘Ed Hardy,’ ‘Christian Audigier,’ ‘Crystal Rock,’ ‘SMET,’ ‘Chuck Boyd,’ ‘Paco Chicano,’ and ‘C-Bar-A.’ Why so many clothing lines? Well, each is distinctive; each has its own signature styles and specialties. Each allows Audigier to explore a different avenue of the fashion world and to make the Christian Audigier clothing brand appeal to more people.
Christian Audigier did not rise to the top of the fashion world without putting in some time and effort, though. In his case, his time and effort was spent working with several different denim companies. When Audigier was younger, his wishful thinking of what it would be like to be a rock-and-roll star lead him to create a denim collection-based upon his vision of the Rolling Stones. His collection was seen and loved by an executive at ‘MacKeen Jeans,’ and this led him to a career working with several important jeans companies. He worked with ‘Levi’s,’ ‘Diesel,’ ‘Bisou Bisou,’ ‘American Outfitters,’ and ‘Fiorucci’-and became a central force in each company. He even gained the nickname “The King of Jeans” because of his work with denim. The Christian Audigier clothing lines today show Audigier’s great skill with denim.
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.
Upon leaving Von Dutch, Audigier wanted to build a clothing line around the idea of tattoos. He decided to do an internet search for “famous tattoo artist,” and it is through this method that he found Don Ed Hardy. The rest is history-Audigier and Hardy formed a partnership and named the clothing line ‘Ed Hardy.’ Now, Christian Audigier clothing items can be found with many different types of Ed Hardy tattoos on them. People can purchase t-shirts, hoodies, and more with these tattooed designs.
Men and women of nearly any age enjoy wearing Christian Audigier clothing. Not many clothing lines can make this type of statement, that’s for certain. Both famous and non-famous people alike enjoy his designs. Audigier has created more than a brand with his clothing lines-he has created a culture.
