Christian Cota

I love being transported to another place when I see a collection.  The music and clothes made me feel as if I were Lt. Uhura in a Star Trek episode.  But they were soooo beautiful!  Mr. Cota was Fashion Group International's Rising Star Award Winner for 2009, and maybe the tons of research he does for his collection has something to do with it. From his show notes: "Layered effects emerge from his study of the earth's striated abysses."  "He developed prints from the flecked surfaces of Chrysocalla, Palasite Meteorite and Mexico's native Acanthite (silver surface)."

Available at our own Captiol.
