When I went over my schedule of shows to attend during fashion week, I happened upon the Chrishabana presentation. Racking my brain for all previous shows and presentations, I was wondering what it would be like. Would there be models? Will they sit still for hours? Will there be photographs? The longer I thought about it, the more ludicrous my ideas became.
Until I walked into the room. Under glass, there were designs laid out on lace. In between twigs and surgical gloves, this tactile presentation was meant to pique one's interest in various ways.
After oohing and ahhing over partnerships with various metals and designs (roses, crosses, and thorns), shooting the designer some questions was inevitable. What was the inspiration behind this collection? Designer, Chris Habana's answer?
Being single. Chris said that by the conclusion of creating this collection, it was dedicated to three individuals. When asked if it was the loves or losses, he said both.
