About me

Hi, Im Chris Sutton... I am a fashion designer and photographer based between London and Paris.

I have worked with brands and publications including Mugler, Diesel, Chanel, W, V magazine, Stiedl and Interscope Records. Between 2012 and 2014, I worked with Marilyn Manson as the artist's fashion director, devising treatments and working with fashion houses on custom pieces for the musician's international tours, videos and promotional material. For Manson's Twins of Evil world tour, I provided fashion direction. ' 'His close work with other musicians, including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Scissor Sisters, have put Sutton on the map as one of the most exciting creative collaborators in Europe today.?' - Alexander Fury (Fashion Editor of The Independent) Sutton is also Director of Chris Sutton Studio, a creative consultancy firm that works on a variety of special design and art commissions for private clients. Previously designed under the label Void of Course before re-branding in 2012, Sutton’s work has been featured in publications such as W and V magazines, and various international editions of Vogue.
