Christopher John Rogers Is Making Whimsical Eveningwear for the Millennial Set

“If you had a mid-century couture show in a deserted California beach town, and everyone went to Mars, what would it look like?” This is what young designer Christopher John Rogers asked himself while working on the collection he showed at Martos Gallery on Elizabeth Street yesterday evening.

Clearly on a budget and more creative for it, Christopher John Rogers, an associate designer at DVF, makes an impressive debut.

“I’d like to see my clothes on people who naturally gravitate toward the pieces and the sincerity of the design,” Rogers says. “I want them to identify with the joy and thoughtfulness that can come with dressing up.” Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Rogers moved to Savannah in 2012 to study fashion design at the Savannah College of Art and Design. After internships at Tanya Taylor and Chris Benz, he worked for the designer Rosie Assoulin before landing a job at Diane von Furstenberg, where he is currently working as the associate designer while also running his own namesake label. His new collection is full of color, graphic prints and natural fabrics including linen and dead-stock cotton. Rogers also explores how to use volume in ways that are conceptual yet flattering.
