Conquering the world of designer underwear, Andrew started his own brand back in 1997 and named it “Andrew Christian.” Since then, he has sold his collections in upscale stores such as Kitson, Patricia Fields and Fred Segal, found all around the country. Proclaiming himself as a perfectionist and a “gaylebrity,” Andrew is serious about his work. He is even notorious for throwing an entire rack of samples across the room if he finds it mediocre and not up to his standards.
Known to many as the “Panty-Christ,” Andrew has garnered worldwide attention for his underwear line. However, he has never given up on aspiring for better things, like taking over the field of women’s fashion. He takes his inspiration from everyday life and modern art, creating deigns that flatter the female body and make women feel good about themselves. While he hopes to one day have a retrospective of his works at the MET, he thrives on a tireless work ethic that has taken him places.
Andrew became known as one of the contestants for Bravo’s reality series The Fashion Show, joining fourteen other aspirants in the competition of their careers. They all worked under the guidance of three judges: internationally acclaimed designer Isaac Mizrahi, four-time Grammy Award-winning performer and actress Kelly Rowland, and fashion luminary and Senior Vice President of IMG Fashion, Fern Mallis. Each designer went head to head for a chance to have their designs sold in the retail market, with the winner going home with a $125,000 cash prize. Andrew lasted until the fourth episode, and was eliminated despite winning the previous challenge
