Christina also lives in Chicago, but she sells her items in boutiques domestically, on her online shop and her designs are soon to be on shopbop, which is so exciting! Like me, she comes from a background in business (and worked on Wall Street) and went back to school to pursue fashion. About 3 years ago she launched her label Christina Karin and it’s fantastic to see how well she has done. Her modern and glam collection is consistent with my style and pairs so well with my jewelry line. Check out her other designs here. And a tidbit – her knit and shift designs are super popular as they fit a variety of body types. This one and this one are fantastic and easy to wear.
If your in Chicago, you will have to attend the Art of Fashion Runway Show (Oct. 17), Christina will be one of the designers showcasing her collection. Info/tickets here.
