Fashion designer Christian Lacroix is heading down a new design path, one that involves designing money. The French designer is now an artistic adviser of La Monnaie de Paris, which is the company in charge of designing and making France's coinage and medals.

The role will require him to create limited edition coins as well as the French 'gay marriage medal.' I think this is a pretty cool direction to be taking: from fashion guru to coin designer. Christian Lacroix has quite the career under his belt. Stats for Luxury Designer Coinage Trending: Older & Chilly
