Luxe Wear Collection A
"My inspiration was mens surf/boardshorts and 50s prom dress frills, I wanted to play contrast with sporty and sweetness", Chris says explaining his collection. Quite the extreme polars of fashion inspiration but it actually worked.

A halter top made out of ruffles is paired with a high waist floral skirt that has an off center oversized zipper that can be manipulated to increase or decrease the length of the slit. The slit I predict will be a very big trend and Chris Diaz is the only designer who had the foresight to incorporate it in his Spring Summer collection. A cool play on texture was his high neck sleeveless top done in liquid sheen taffeta thats embellished with pleats of various sizes and paired with floral slim pants. His pieces had an air of couture meets summery chic. This is fashion for the intellectual stylista. In short, this designer understands that someone has to push and change the conventional bar for designer dresses without compromising the visual impact, wearability and chicness of each piece.
