Jessica of J-Chan’s Designs is a wildly imaginative, out-of-this-world stylist, costume designer, and makeup artist. She is also the founder and editor in chief of recently launched Giuseppina Magazine.
Vivid, manic, bipolar, brave colors and contrasting, rougher vs. delicate textures characterize her fashion creations. The makeup is fittingly bold and insanely colorful. The styling is what really draws me to these designs, often adding a rare beauty to them. It can be a bit gritty and over-the-top, or more elegant and subdued, in muted colors. Elaborate, innovative, often wildly colorful makeup and huge hair/headdresses with lots of ornament and accessory are a common element, and complement the crazed fairytale aesthetic of the outfits. Though it can be wacky and almost overwhelmingly cluttered, a color-explosion chaos to the eye, it is always interesting.
Mother of London is an innovative alternative couturier that makes beautiful, inspired creations in rough vs. delicate textures: black leather, gauzy, tattered layers, elaborate lace, hardware and corset lacing. Their aesthetic is simultaneously rugged and delicate, futuristic and Victorian, with lots of asymmetry and contrasts. Check out some of their work below:
