Jean Charles de Castelbajac



Jean-Charles de Castelbajac was born in Casablanca in 1949 and moved to France with his mother at the age of 15, upon his father’s death. This great loss at such a young age propelled him into an early adulthood, which led to a fascination with childhood apparent in most of his work.

He describes himself as a rebel and cites poetry, colour and humour as the inspiration behind his work.
In 1968 he created his first ready-to-wear collection for KO & CO, in 1997 he was designing habits for the pope!
