Andy Chrisst of ChrisstComplex has a dark, glamorous aesthetic, and has been retailing out of House of Fetish on Oxford Street for some years now, as well as his own studio.
He has been involved in numerous fashion events in Sydney, had his creations featured in Tangent Mag, and consistently comes up with edgy yet wearable garments for the adventurous.
On Wednesday 9th February, look out for his giant SUMMER FASHION SAMPLE SALE – of labels Chrisst, 2040 and Glamordeath - at 419 Parramatta Rd Leichhardt.
Chrisst and Glamordeath offer dark alternative looks, such as pvc catsuits, slinky dresses, collars, pointy shouldered jackets and more, while 2040 focuses on sexy, glam resort looks such as sequinned tops and summer dresses, bikinis, kaftans and bodysuits.
I’m in love with quite a few of his current creations, and so share them here with you:
Deluxe Zipper Dress
Jacket with Loop Top Sleeves
PVC Motocross Catsuit
Velvet Long Sleeved Catsuit or bodysuit
While some gothic brands can look a little old-fashioned, Chrisst’s designs are always edgy, and are such that the pieces can be worked into non-gothic wardrobes – as various magazine fashion stylists have found. Below are several Tangent Mag shoots utilising his fashion, first as worn by Tammy Stone, and the other by Camille Yi:
For some eye-popping colour, here are some Glamordeath pieces:
and there are definitely cool threads for guys as well…(yep, that’s the man himself to the right…)
For summery goodness, have a peek at some 2040 fashion:
and as seen on the rack at The Salon:
If you can’t get to the sale (as I cannot), then pay a visit to his studio at Crystal Street Petersham (call 02 956966354), or check out House of Fetish, the Chrisst Complex online store or Andy’s facebook page.
