Christina Makowsky is a name commonly associated with style and luxury within the fashion industry. The New York-based designer owned a chain of upscale boutiques called Georgina, which she operated for 28 years. With a disdain for mass production and over distributed garments, Makowsky closed the doors of her successful boutiques and set out on a journey to redefine the essence of luxury garments. She successfully launched a luxurious line of intricately crafted garments; all made in the U.S. “I make garments for the intelligent woman that desires the finest fabric and appreciates unique workmanship.” says Makowsky.
On March 21st Makowsky hosted a luxury trunk show to debut her glamorous designs for a roster of elite clientele in the exclusive Lift MD Aesthetics, in the heart of Beverly Hills. The sleek white office acted as a clean slate to display the Christina Makowsky collection, which appeared like artwork sprinkled throughout the reception area. Guest excitedly browsed through captivating garments in an attempt to obtain limited edition designs, while sipping chilled champagne and satisfying their palates with desserts reminiscent of beautiful buttons found on expensive blazers.
Makowsky gracefully worked the room and socialized with all of her guest, while providing insight on various design details that reinforced the quality of her luxurious pieces. Her garments have most notably been worn by Cheryl Burke, Nicole Scherzinger, Kelly Rowland and Paula Abdul. On display were garments from her glamorous Red Carpet Collection, comprised of primarily black, white and silver pieces. The separates were tastefully embellished with glass, mirror crystals, sequins and intricate beading. The Spring/ Summer 2012 Resort Collection, was also comprised of unique and vibrant pieces with refreshing bursts of color in an assortment of patterns and textures. The collection consists of classic day dresses with embellished collars, lace blazers and vibrant blouses, perfect for vacationing in St. Tropez.
“My clothing is high style and not trendy. I mix classic structures with glamour and edge that allow the clothing to transition from day to night.” says Makowsky. Recently she expanded her collection with a few signature accessory pieces. Glass beaded collars, embellished wrist bands and rope body jewelry that are the icing on top of Makowsky’s decadent cake.
In addition to the luxury showcase, complimentary consultations were administered by Dr. Kassabian, expert in aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. After making purchases, guests were ushered into serenity rooms for individual consults.
At the close of the evening, designer Christina Makowsky bid her guest “Adieu” wearing a floor length gown with an embellished waistline from her Red Carpet Collection.
