Christopher John Rogers: Designer

September 30, 2019

If you Google the name Christopher John Rogers, a slew of articles will come up with all the same title: "Meet Christopher John Rogers, Fashion's Next Big Thing." At just 25-years-old, Christopher is one of the youngest break-out designers on the fashion scene. Although he made his Fashion Week debut just a month ago, Christopher has garnered industry-wide acclaim through his unapologetically joyful and colorful designs. His collection was met with a standing ovation and rave reviews from Vogue, WWD, and more. He was a 2019 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist, and his clothes have been worn by Michelle Obama, Rihanna, SZA, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Cardi B.

In this episode, Christopher and I talk about creating glamour in a not-so-glamorous world, representation in the fashion industry, and how a Baton Rogue-born designer plans to make it big in the Big Apple.
