Christian Cota - New York Spring 2010
(NEW YORK) "I was imagining this woman, so beautiful that she’s almost fragile surrounded by all the hardness," said Christian Cota of his collection. "I really felt like this was the moment to expand my horizons." The rising designer opted not to show just yet, as he’s still developing his brand identity and long-term business plan. Though this collection is a lot more diverse and perhaps less cohesive than his previous efforts, it is still very much effective and exciting. Cota took the bloom theme to heart with an outing that showcased everything from unmatched print dresses to admirable day-to-day pieces to an eye-popping bathing suit. The young designer clearly has a wonderful intuition with proportions and most importantly inevitable consumer appeal.
