Christina Makowsky Spring 2012 Collection

Designer Christina Makowsky and I at her Spring 2012 trunk show in the Plaza Hotel 
I had the privilege of attending Christina Makowsky’s Spring 2012 trunk show at the Plaza Hotel during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I’ve known about her work for a little over a year now and I’m a huge fan. I first learned about her through watching my guilty TV pleasure the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa Vanderpump one of the real housewives of the show would frequently mention Christina Makowsky. I really loved her work and decided to reach out and feature her as a designer of the day for a fashion site I was writing for at the time. Christina and I have been connected through social media ever since. 

Fast forward to a month ago I was going through my fashion week invites and was delighted to find an exclusive invitation to the Christina Makowsky Spring 2012 trunk show at the Plaza Hotel. 

That day my schedule was packed with back to back shows but I was determined to go meet her in person and see her Spring 2012 collection. I only had an hour in between my next show at the tents so I quickly ran out of Lincoln Center and hailed a cab to the Plaza Hotel. 

Walking into the Plaza Hotel was an adventure in itself. The hotel was so beautiful inside that I literally had to stop myself from looking around. 

Finally I found the right suite where the trunk show was held. It was such a pleasure to finally meet Christina in person. She was so nice and personally showed me her gorgeous Spring 2012 collection. 

Christina Makowsky's Spring 2012 collection featured lovely dresses and jackets in luxury materials like lace and chiffon. 

She's really known for using gorgeous lace material in her designs like the below Open Shoulder Lace Dress with Beaded Trim. 


The collection also had matching separates to seamlessly take a look from day to night like the below Pink Slashed Frayed High Neck Dress and Slashed Frayed Swing Duster. These were two of my favorite pieces.
