Christian Benner

Christian Benner is a New York-based fashion designer known for his custom-distressed leather jackets and band tees that he produces by hand. He was initially inspired by the do-it-yourself fashion in the punk rock scene of the late 70s and early 80s. Benner used the same attitude to create his first original designs and cultivated his own unique grasp of rock and roll culture in his clothing. The records he listens to often inspire his work and his designs are treated as an artistic process similar to the creation of a painting.

His custom leather jackets and t-shirts are sought by musicians and stylists for events, concerts and editorial shoots. His designs can be seen on celebrities including Kate Moss, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Demi Lovato, Elle King, Jared Leto, Ellie Goulding, and Machine Gun Kelly. His designs have been featured in publications such as W Magazine, Interview Magazine, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Playboy Magazine, Bullett Magazine, and “The Huffington Post.” Benner is currently designing the wardrobe for Guns ‘N’ Roses on their upcoming spring tour.
