Christian Joy (New York)

After garnering attention with her playful costumes for Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O, designer Christiane Joy Hultquist decided to launch a womenswear line for Spring 2008, debuting with a New Wave-y black-and-white jersey collection that garnered rave reviews. For FW08-09,  Christian Joy hits its awkward teen years with a primary color palette, unflattering use of volume, and jumble of references from prairie dresses to burlesque that seem to evoke an '80s prom night.
