Classic Sophistication….

4 Feb

Designs by Charles Corvsky Dieujuste

At SimplyStudded we are always looking for what’s hot, what’s fashionable and what’s current… Upon my quest I came across a phenomenal designer by the name of Charles Corvsky Dieujuste.  Charles is a designer who is up and coming and full of potential. He is a Designer who truly knows how to design clothing that frames a women’s body. I had the pleasure of interviewing Charles and getting into the mind frame of what it takes to be a Designer.

Charles Corvsky Dieujuste

1)      Who exactly is Charles Corvsky Dieujuste?

Charles Corvsky Dieujuste is a hard working Haitian-American who is working on his ultimate goal; Designing women wear is one of his many passions. I am not the most perfect individual but I am working towards perfection! I am a student, I work fulltime and I am working towards my brand. I am not as fortunate as others to delve into the industry with vast contacts. But I am working towards it. I am an optimist and believe that opportunities don’t just knock on your door. In life you simply must go after what you really want. I mean i guest I am aiming for the ultimate goal to fulfill this ultimate dream.

2)      What is “Fashion” to you (in your own words)?

Fashion to me is a form of expression. An expression from my thoughts, mind, mood, art, lifestyle etc. But ultimately fashion is what has been transformed into apparel or garment.

3)      What influenced you to become a fashion designer?

When I was growing up I remember telling my mother that I wanted to do something pertaining to the arts. That Idea was not a great one because she opposed it. As i grew older I knew sketching was something that I enjoyed doing. I remember making my first garment when I was ten. I made a skirt for my sister out of paper with fringes on it. The paper was like mustard yellow I can remember it like it was yesterday. I remember my sister was like 5 or 6 at the time and I don’t know if she remembered the experience. At the time I didn’t have a clue about garment construction except for watching my aunt making dresses in Port-au-Prince. To think my first garment was sealed by elmer’s glue at the ends…. Wow… Till this day I laugh at that experience.

4)      I read your Bio and realized you are from Haiti. How has your culture affected your designs?

My culture plays an important part in my designs. It plays a part when i get the opportunity to use vibrant colors in a collection. The brand is new and growing! I can’t wait to play and experiment with some vibrant colors in the future.

5)      Looking at your collection it is cohesive. You have separates and dresses. Is there any piece you are mostly proud of?

Thank you so very much. The pieces that I ultimately love are the floor length gowns. My aesthetic consists of old classic glamour with feminine silhouettes and a splash of modernism. Because of the economy and our time frame my clientele unfortunately are not wearing floor length gowns unless for a special event. CCD is working on balancing both worlds.

6)      Your Spring 2011 collection is ultra-feminine, soft and screams elegance. What was the inspiration behind this collection?

This collection was simply based on the mood that I was feeling at that moment. Ultra feminine is CCD’s main goal. The inspiration behind this collection was Back to Basics. In other words creating a collection where I felt pieces could be worn during the day and also styled for evening gatherings or weekend festivities. The right accessories could surely bring these key pieces to life. In terms of styling it would simply be left to your imagination. Go wild have fun with it!

7)      As a Designer you have to stay ahead of the trends; what do you see as the upcoming trends for women this year.

Personally I don’t go after trends! I choose to create as it comes naturally. Honestly trends are for the consumers. In other words the consumer that is purchasing the garment should create the aura of the garment. Set your own trend I say…. Be original be bold… Everyone has their sense of style. Embrace it!!!

8)      What is one word that can be used to embody your designs?

CLASSIC…  The reason for this is because my designs can be worn 5 years from now. All you have to do is accessorize it to your preference. Accessories are key to any garment.

9)      If you could collaborate with one designer, who would it be and why?

They are so many great designers that I truly admire and would collaborate with.  #1 is OSCAR DE LA RENTA,  #2 VALENTINO, # 3 ELIE SAAB, and #4 ZUHAIR MURAD. These designers are amazingly talented!!! I would love to collaborate or work with anyone of them if I am given an opportunity. Lastly CHRISTIAN DIOR my all-time favorite.

10)  Where do you see your company going in the next few years?

Honestly I am not sure where the company will be headed in the next few years. I am open to the wonderful opportunities heading my way. All I can say is let the hard work begin!!!!!!

11)  Where can consumers go to buy your clothing?

Consumers can make purchase via online www.charlescdieujuste.com all information is on the website.

12)  If you could dress one celebrity client for the Red Carpet, who would it be?

Oprah Winfrey…. She is a strong woman and represents herself quite well. She is intelligent, compassionate, bold and makes her own decisions. In spite of it all she overcame a lot of obstacles and is a continued success. I admire all these qualities about her!!!!

13)  Okay Charles leave our readers with some parting words of inspiration or a quote you live by…

DO NOT LET ANYONE STILL YOUR JOY! INDIVIDUALS AT TIMES ARE BITTER & HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO BUT TO BRING YOU DOWN! ON THAT NOTE RISE ABOVE IT ALL. This is something that I live by day to day. At times life can throw you a curve ball you simply must rise above it all.
