Phillipe and David Blond, a.k.a. The Blonds, first met in New York City, ten years ago. Together, they have created a number of extremely Rock 'n' Roll collections that have taken the design world by storm. Featuring glitz, glamour, crystals, sequins, and spikes, their pieces have garnered rave reviews from editors, fashion writers, stylists, and celebrities alike.

Since their launch in 2005, The Blonds have never failed to deliver countless legendary high drama looks, season after season:

The intricate detail in their pieces is immaculate, taking anywhere from weeks to months to create:

Since the beginning, they immediately ignited what has become a dedicated following, including a long list of today's top performers, like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Fergie, Nicki Minaj, Christina Aguilera, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Adam Lambert, and Miley Cyrus:
