Christian Classen’s first exposure to fashion came from observing his grandmother work as a wardrobe stylist, and since then storytelling through the art of wardrobe has been his passion. At 16 years old, Christian underwent apprenticeships with top stylists, and just shy of a decade later, Christian launched his solo career with a succession of highly publicized red carpet and street looks for Selena Gomez.
In the time since, Christian has established himself as a discerning tastemaker, crafting iconic images and personas for Lake Bell, Cailee Spaeny, BANKS, Dove Cameron, Wes Bentley, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Olsen. He has also shot with photographers Mert + Marcus, Ellen Von Unwerth, Paola Kudacki, Petra Collins and Guy Aroch. As a costume designer, he created looks for Selena Gomez’s 2016 “Revival” tour.
Christian lives in Los Angeles.
