Hair and makeup tests. Model castings. Final fittings and alterations. All at the same time. That’s #NYFW for fashion designer Christian Cowan (@christiancowan). “It kind of feels weirdly under control, which scares me maybe even more,” Christian said two days before his fashion show. “I feel like there should be some huge issue we’re dealing with.” (Better to save the drama for the runway.)
For his latest collection, Christian was inspired by the excess of modern culture. He used watches, crystals and lots of neon to poke fun at the concept that more is more.
Christian is also proud of having a diverse runway that includes plus-size models and trans models. “I never grew up wanting to dress just one type of woman. That wasn’t the dream,” he says. “I want to dress all kinds of women.”
Today on our IGTV channel, the young designer invites us into his studio and backstage at his show.
