Designer shocked by Gaga style

Student designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis has opened up about Lady Gaga wearing his designs.

Christian Cowan-Sanluis is a first year student at the London College of Fashion.

The Applause singer was photographed wearing his pink glitter suit and matching hat as she left a radio station in New York, something that surprised Christian.

"I was just at home with a friend and a friend of mine sent me a picture saying congrats. It’s safe to say I got pretty excited, ha!" he revealed to British magazine Grazia.

"[Dressing Gaga] was really quick actually; I released the collection and had my first presentation. Not long after Lady Gaga’s stylist, Brandon Maxwell, requested nearly the entire collection, so it was all flown off! Before I had got an emailing saying that Lady Gaga liked the pink glitter suit but I wasn't sure, so it was a complete surprise!"

Christian's collection was inspired by fabulous women and he was a big Gaga fan before the singer chose to wear his designs.

In fact, Christian designed his first collection listening to the Paparazzi star's music.

"I listened to her ARTPOP album a lot when designing the collection, as it had just come out, and there were a lot of nights in!" he laughed.

With one major music superstar under his designer belt, Christian revealed which other popstars he would like to create clothes for.

His choice was someone as equally vibrant as Gaga.

"I’d love to work with Nicki Minaj; she's always so flamboyant and I could have so much fun doing a commission for her!" he explained.

"I’ve always wanted to do a pair of glasses for Elton John. That is definitely a dream of mine, I have a lot of ridiculous ideas I just need to work out how to make this happen!"
