Designer Spotlight Charles Harbison – New Designer Charles Harbison NYC

Ask the Charlotte, North Carolina, native about the inspirations for his debut New York Fashion Week presentation and you’ll get a veritable laundry list (or an object lesson in divine bricolage, depending on how you see things): “Preppiness, Yves Klein, Aaliyah’s ‘Rock the Boat,’ and a Slim Aarons photo of Katharine Hepburn in a Rolls-Royce at Montego Bay.”
