Christina Minasian is a name in fashion you may hear of repeatedly in the coming years. The designer debuted her recent Spring/Summer 2013 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. The collections was a pleasantly surprising mix of urban hipster chic with a smattering of contemporary thrown in. Minasian went the installation route and displayed to New York city via open windows her collection. It garnered a good amount of looky loos because it did have some degree of eye candy involved. Highlights from the collection include a vibrant mix of print dresses and jumpsuits, a monochromatic wrapped skirt with matching top, a provocative floral dress with sides exposed in a triangular cut. It wasn’t an eye-opening wow factor kind of ensemble, and maybe that was purposefully so. The designer’s press material states that the collection “is inspired by the chic bohemia and beloved by the international Gypsy. Pencey appeals to a street smart, fashionable girl who can fit in with every crowd.”
The hipsters will love this. The girl looking for something a little different for her closet but not glaringly so, will love this as well.
