A little chat with Christian Francis Roth

by jennine on June 30, 2009

In the  90’s Christian Francis Roth, known for his upscale innovative collections,  bright colors and pop art inspired fashion. After incredible debut and subsequently exciting collections in the fashion scene, he decided to take a break and learn the business side of fashion. Last year Christian Francis Roth made his return to fashion, now with savvy  collections with great detailing, and his signature playful aesthetic. Just last month he and Wendy Brandes launched a new fashion blog: Francis New York. Here he talks with us so we can get to know him better…

[Jennine] What’s favorite song right now?


[Christian Francis Roth] “Knight of Wands” by Au Revoir Simone

[J] If you had to make a uniform to be worn every day this autumn with items only from your collection what would they be?


[CFR] I really like my patchwork dresses that combine wool and chiffon in stripe or zig zag patterns. The look is sweet, yet modern and graphic.

[J] And why?

[CFR] The sheer/opaque effect makes the dress lighter, which makes wearing it indoors all day more practical. Besides that, the dresses are just wicked cool!

[J] If you could dress any person living or dead in your collection, who would it be?

[CFR] My mother when she was 19,  blonde, fabulous and hanging out with The Rolling Stones at Max’s Kansas City.

[J] So tell me, what’s your favorite quote?

[J] What are you doing tonight?

[CFR] Oh, are you asking me out? Great! Where are we going?

You can find out more about Christain Francis Roth’s new collection on FrancisNewYork.com and he’s got a fabulous blog written by the gorgeous WendyB! Don’t forget to stop by.
