Front Row at Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

The designer celebrated his 40th anniversary in fashion with his two sons, Louis-Marie and Guilhem, in the front row.

MARKING TIME: Jean-Charles de Castelbajac celebrated his 40th anniversary in fashion with his two sons, Louis-Marie and Guilhem, and singer Natalia Kills in the front row. The designer, whose label recently came under new ownership, did not want to draw attention to the milestone, choosing instead to showcase up-and-coming band Tomorrow’s World at his show. Louis-Marie de Castelbajac said he was launching a new brand of Swiss-made watches, under the name “By Louis-Marie de Castelbajac.” Meanwhile, Guilhem de Castelbajac said his Los Angeles-based interior design company was taking off and would soon design a new bar for the Thompson hotel in Beverly Hills.
