Christian Cota (New York)

Growing up amid Mexico City's privileged class, Christian Cota would create his own costumes for his mother's lavish costume parties, a predilection that took him first to painting school in Paris, then to Parsons in New York, where his fashion design studies gave him the basis for what would become his solo collection. His painting background shows in the prints that grace his soft, feminine draped dresses and tops, slim swirls of pastel chiffon that, if not the most original thing going, have found their market among socialites dressing for the ball, whether in Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, or North Carolina. Thousands of miles from his hometown, it would appear that Cota has indeed found his milieu.
