I’ve been dying to share this news for months. Finally, it’s official so I can blab! Fashion designer Christian Francis Roth is back in business. Read about it in the Wall Street Journal and WWD.
If you’re looking for examples of Christian’s previous work, you’ve come to the right place. I believe I have the most extensive photo collection of his work online, courtesy of Christian himself. Here are the links.

For ALL the posts that have mentioned Christian, including the archive posts, click here.
I’ve seen sketches of the new collection and I’ve already picked out the pieces I’m getting. I just wish I didn’t have to wait.
(Feel free to use the archive photos on your blogs, if you wish, but please link back to me!)
UPDATED TO ADD: Speaking of early ’90s designers, there was a lot of buzz around Gemma Kahng back in the day, but now? Nada. She’s still in business, though. Check out her latest collections here. There’s also an exquisite black jacket for sale on eBay. That bitch won’t let me save its picture, but it’s still worth a look. And Dorothea’s Closet Vintage has a leather jacket by Kahng. You’ll notice that Kahng has a real passion for distinctive buttons.
Love that Francis, what a great choice for the name of his new collection. Can’t wait to see you in your new duds, WendyB.
hate hate hate waiting. it is worth it though!

Princess Poochie says
His designs are delish! Can we as your faithful readers get first dibs to? Or at least be able to see the designs and find out where to buy them????
Lucky you! It’s worth the wait. I always liked his crayon-inspired work, wonder what the new line is like…
Tavi, all I can say is that it’s very “New York.”
market publique says
Yes! Love him! My eyeglasses are by him and they are fabulous (although probably licensed).
MP, it’s a common confusion! The sunglasses guy is someone else. Christian Roth vs Christian Francis Roth.
Kira Fashion says
i love your smile!!!
Prunella Jones says
Dayum, I’m going to get married in one of his wedding dresses with that black skull ring from a few posts down. Absolutely perfect! Now all I need is a groom and I’m all set.
Make Do & Mend says

I am back in the business of not being able to afford Christian Roth! Yes!
I’m glad to hear that CFR is in business. It’s cool to know that we’ll be seeing new work from him soon.
I love the giant buttons on that jacket, and the cropped shape is perfect!
