Christopher Bevans is an American fashion designer and creative director.

After college, Bevans developed his skills as a designer for Sean John, where he worked on the CFDA award-winning 2004 collection, and as a senior designer for Rocawear, where he worked on Kanye West's unreleased first clothing line, Pastelle, created in collaboration with West on The College Dropout tour.

Additionally, Bevans created his own line of custom menswear for celebrities, including Prince, Jay Z, John Legend and LeBron James.

Bevans moved to Portland, Oregon in 2006 to join Nike as global design director of urban apparel. At Nike, he led the design of the Air Force 1 25th Anniversary campaign, the Blue Ribbon Sports collection, Roger Federer's "RF" logo and Kanye West's first collaboration with Nike on the Air Max 1.

In 2012, Bevans became creative director of Billionaire Boys Club, the clothing line established by Pharrell Williams and Nigo.

In 2013, Bevans was chosen by MIT Media Lab Director Joi Ito to be part of the inaugural Director's Fellows program, defined by Ito as "extraordinary individuals from a broad range of sectors and geographies to join us in doing collaborative research and to expand our growing global community.”

Bevans joined speakers at the Media Lab's first Platform Summit, to address an audience of business and thought leaders in science, technology, finance, politics, education, media, design and the arts.[11] He regularly lectures on mentorship and design, most notably for Cooper Hewitt and Art Dubai’s Global Art Forum.

Since 2014, Bevans is working with Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and Relativity Media to develop the Beast Mode brand, clothing and accessories line.

In 2015, Bevans introduced DYNE, his debut line of tailored, technologically advanced sportswear, at Men's Fashion Week in New York City.

In 2017, Bevans won International Woolmark Prize regional final.
