Christopher John Rogers Is Bringing Back ’80s Glamour With His Debut Collection

Rogers, a 22-year-old Baton Rouge, Louisiana-native, studied fashion design at the Savannah College of Art and Design. New York became like a second home during his summers there, and he interned with some of today’s leading design talents, like Chris Benz at Bill Blass, Charles Harbison, and Azede Jean-Pierre. “Every internship sort of informed my interest in a certain area of design,” said Rogers. “When I went to the rack my first day interning with Azede and saw the way that she was cutting clothes, I noticed that even the removal of an arm seam or extending an inch of the neck can really elevate the luxury of a garment. Seeing the way she worked with fur and the way Charles treated tailoring was so essential to me.”
