Fashion Designer: Chris Benz

With his collection of clothing now available worldwide and at the age of only 30 years, I'll look into who exactly is Chris Benz. Well he is a well known fashion designer from the States. 

He began his notoriority into the fashion world after gaining CFDA scholarship while attending Parson's School of Design in 2004. Whilst at College Benz interned with Marc Jacobs.  

However it wasn't until 2007 that Benz released his first collection. His use of colour and texture, with prints allowed his collection to stand out and gave him a unique signature for his tailoring.  

His AW2007 collection was ful of 70's chic and glamour with mixed tailoring and an exceptional attention to detail  

Skip forward multiple years and his attention and tailouring haven't withered a bit, if anything they've improved impeccably. His latest SS13 collection creates a vacation mind-set. Where every piece is set with power net mesh and looks as if you're back in 70s heading towards your latest holiday destination.  

The standout piece was a floral transparent dress with matching coloured pants. Benz signature American inspired look was evident in every piece and  so look forward to SS13 where Benz classed his collection as "it's time to have fun!".
