It’s been a year since the CFDA rightfully awarded designer Christopher John Rogers a glorious win.. And now? This 26-year-old prodigious designer has delivered one of the most highly anticipated and unforgettable runways at NYFW..
His theme literally brought fashion back to life, with Rogers’ pleasant approach to introducing color in the most sublime manner, a fashion rainbow was created. To Rogers, dressing up to the nines comes from his southern background, originally from Baton Rogue- Mississippi, the ‘minimal’ and ‘casual’ never stood a chance.. Breaking boundaries in the way he meshes colors was unprecedented..
Growing up in Louisiana, I didn’t always feel empowered to be myself. So, escaping or somehow squeezing myself into a space where I could release all the things that I wanted to release was a dream of mine.
With their utterly detailed afros, models sashayed the runway donning perfectly tailored colors and silhouettes. Avant-garde shoulder pads, exquisite prints and a carefully selected color palette, alongside high quality fabrics captivated the crowd..
Seeing is believing, check out CIIN’s favorite looks from last night’s Christopher John Rogers..
