Christina Walthall is a NY based fashion and accessory designer. Currently studying fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, 19 year old Christina works towards achieving her dream of building her fashion brand. With her view on the world of fashion, Christina never seeks to dress even merely similar to that of the average person and wants to design for people with the same motive. Her designs give off the epitome of someone that is unique, talented, and shows off a freedom of expression unlike any other. She wants to dress the person who lives for being seen and the expression of people who would otherwise be satisfied fading into the group of people behind them. Christina Walthall wants to dress the person who is ahead; Walthall is the future of fashion.
Realizing her love of fashion through dressing her collection of Bratz dolls at the age of 10, she inspires to go further by dressing a wide variety of people. Dressing dolls was like a fantasy world where designer Walthall could express herself freely and effortlessly through her fashion designs. She aspires to bring her fantasy back to life by dressing the person in her garments. That person would strut and come to life from a transformation of her favorite childhood doll.
Although Christina’s main objective is to have her label on the back of her brand of clothes, she makes clear that she has “a passion for all things fashion.” Christina has been designing a wide variety of accessories from purses and jewelry, to shoes and sunglasses. From receiving positive feedback from previous and potential customers, she has come to conclusion that fashion should not simply stop at a crochet top or an elegantly sculpted organza evening gown.
In addition to Christina’s love for fashion, she also has a love for art and music. She receives much of her inspiration from fashions and musical artists from the 1980’s. Walthall quotes, “I design for people who want to be seen and make a scene.” -C. WALTHALL
