An exhibition featuring the work of Karen O clothing designer Christian Joy

Fashion/Style

Christian Joy: Bok Joy

If you've ever seen the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in concert, you've encountered the gleefully deranged costume work of DIY designer Christian Joy – and you probably haven't forgotten it. Known best as the woman behind Karen O's confoundingly awesome costumes, Joy is a truly original treasure of New York fashion, and her uninhibited designs have earned her a decade-long cult popularity among musicians and style explorers alike. The more approachable end of her looks encompass deconstructed tutus, decorative capes and busy one-pieces, while the more avant-leaning styles transcend costume altogether and border on wearable art installations. While her work with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs siren put her on the map – a 2002 renegade fashion show called "Brat Style" captured their chemistry best – Joy has successfully gone on to branch out her design ideas into art and theatre (including Karen O's "psycho-opera" Stop the Virgens) while dreaming up new ways to bring her batty concepts into manageable doses for the average consumer.
