Chrisst Complex – sample sale Feb 9th

It’s definitely time to turn my attention back to some alternative designers…and aussie ones, while I’m at it!!

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.

  1. Love the Chrisstcomplex…and he is a local too.! (the Inner West rocks!)

  2. I am dribbling over the velvet catsuit. Amazing shoulders! Dribble dribble dribble… 😉

  3. Wow incredible………they are all gorgeous in a really really really unconventional way…but what stood out to me the most in this post is the cat ear kind of hair do on the girl with what looks like prosthetic cheekbones. WOW.
