Tata Christiane is a fashion and costume label founded in 2007 by Julie Bourgeois and Hanrigabriel. Tata Christiane proposes collections with serial and unique pieces, and a costume design atelier for theater, movies and art projects… Besides offering fashion collections the label stands for various cooperations in art performances, film, photography and music. Tata Christiane is a vision of the street costume, it proposes an absurd and disturbing vision of beauty, with decline, maladjustment, extravagance and immoderation. Without being neither a concept nor a futuristic vision of the society, it plays with the borders of elegance and bad taste, digging up our old memories, recycling the waste of our civilisation, and becoming a monomania, a machination and a monstruous and sublime unique piece. Tata Christiane could have been a punk, if she was not also an ambiguous queen, a one eyed flautist, a gypsy woman and a street child. Tata Christiane Couture is for boys and girls, women and transvesties, men and old people, kings and madmen. Tata Christiane Couture developps two trends / collections a year, producing limited serial clothes and uniques pieces. Using hand made and industrial production, the design and the cuts, the materials and the fabrics ,follow from the adaptation of poetic museum/costumes/vintage/streewear…pieces, into a contemporary street costume.
