Considered one of the most meteoric rises in fashion history, Christian Audigier has parlayed his design experience and business acumen to become a true fashion icon.

Through his collection of international companies, he has launched nine popular brands and oversees an international conglomerate of his designer brands, including Ed Hardy™, Christian Audigier™, SMET™, Crystal Rock™, most recently C-Bar-A™, Savoir Faire™, Evel Knievel ™, Rock Fabulous™, and Paco Chicano™; this includes US and international wholesale distribution, US retail stores, as well as international retail stores.

Christian made his mark throughout the fashion industry after a fortuitous start at MacKeen Jeans. He has contributed to successful brands such as Diesel, Fiorucci, Bisou Bisou, Levi’s, NafNaf and American Outfitters. Christian’s style is so distinctive that he is known as the “King of Jeans.”

More recently, Christian threw his ingenuity behind Von Dutch™, where he catapulted the brand from obscurity into a household name. He single handedly created several trends, including the now famous trucker hat trend which could be seen on everyone from college students to high-profile celebrities. Christian was responsible for putting Von Dutch™ on the map, thus paving the way for his next great enterprise.

In 2004, Christian left Von Dutch™ and proceeded to create and launch the wildly popular Ed Hardy® brand. He was granted the exclusive rights to the designs of Don Ed Hardy, who is commonly referred to as the “Godfather of Tattoo.” With Ed Hardy®, Christian not only created a brand, but a lifestyle of street couture.

Christian Audigier Motoring (CA Motoring), is the brainchild of fashion icon Mr. Christian Audigier. An avid auto enthusiast, Audigier knew that a void in the market existed and knew that he could give the worldwide audience the type of innovative automotive product that they are looking to purchase. The 2008 launch of CA Motoring further proves that Christian Audigier truly represents and encapsulates the true meaning of first class lifestyle and its design.

Twenty minutes outside of Manhattan, USA is the flagship 88,000 sq. ft. Christian Audigier Motoring factory located within the Empire Coachworks Automotive Compound. Skilled craftsman, technicians, and engineers, fabricate the components that make a chassis become a CA Motoring experience. Following strict guidelines based on original hand-sketched designs of Christian, customers are able to carefully coordinate there particular wants, needs and desires into their custom crafted bespoke vehicle(s).

The interiors and the exterior of the escalade are in such contrast. The interiors are awsome and the exterior in direct contrast, so damn ugly.
