Claire Jane Vranian started her career in the film industry at the legendary Pinewood Studios and in ‘94 moved to Los Angeles, recruited by ‘Two Hours in the Dark’, a Makeup Effects/Production Company. Over the next 17 years she would work on various commercials, television shows, and pop promos as well as over 40 motion pictures – working closely with writers, directors, painters, sculptors, actors and artists of every kind.
Back in 2009, Claire Jane felt the need to express herself creatively with something that was personal to her. After working in such a rich ‘environment of creativity,’ coupled with a love of fashion, film and music, ‘Inspired by Claire Jane’ was born, now known as ICJUK (Inspired By Claire Jane UK)
Claire Jane has created a growing line of ICJUK Shirts for the ‘Rock Star’ in everyone. Joe Elliott from Def Leppard and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin have been spotted rocking ICJUK shirts, which have been seen on stage and in magazines throughout the world. Each design is created by Claire Jane and each one has a story behind it which makes them unique. The inks are all lead-free and water-based and with each wash they become softer. Claire Jane wanted the fabrics to have the same feel as the old vintage concert tees from the ‘60’s & ‘70’s.
ICJUK also has a line of custom Vintage feathered handbags & hair fascinators described by many as ‘Sophisticated Rock ‘n Roll Chic & Elegance. “I wanted to create a feel of old glamorous Hollywood meets rock and roll and by up-cycling one of a kind vintage handbags they really are the ultimate collector’s accessory” states Claire Jane. She uses cruelty free feathers and eye catching antique jewels, and her handbags have been seen at award shows and red carpet events. In the summer of 2012, Claire Jane was featured as part of the Emerging Designer program at Zappos.
2013 ICJUK had various trunk shows at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas while Def Leppard had their residency, where Claire Jane was able to really expand her customer base and a create a demand for the designs. At the end of 2013 Claire Jane moved into her first showroom and offices in Las Vegas.
2014 Claire Jane designed her signature Rock and Roll flow tops and various graphic designs.
2016, a new collection, “Ocean Anarchy” was born and now in 2017 ICJUK is looking forward to expanding the line with a collection of swimwear and new designs.
Currently, Claire Jane has a private Showroom and offices off the fabulous Las Vegas Strip where customers can book a personal shopping experience one-on-one.
