2 haute Houston fashion designers debut new on-trend lines blooming with fab florals for spring
For Houston's fashion-conscious ladies, springtime means swapping out heavier winter fabrics for breezier options and retiring those cozy hoodies. It's always exciting to embrace dresses, skirts, and a brighter, more playful wardrobe.
This season's collections evoke a softer mood with delicate fabrics and a nod to chic minimalism, and two Houston designers boast new lines of the trend.
Christy Lynn Lee and Lyndsey Zorich recently debuted stunning new collections for those looking to add to their spring or summer closets. These Houston-based designers have crafted smartly tailored garments featuring antique-inspired patterns and comfortable yet gorgeous pieces that elevate any spring and summer fashion game.
Read on to find out how to shop these must-have collections.
Christy Lynn Collection, Wild Dusk
Christy Lynn Lee unveiled her highly anticipated Spring/Summer 2023 collection, Wild Dusk with an exclusive runway show at River Oaks District restaurant, Bari Ristorante. Christy Lynn is known for her romantic designs and use of carefully curated fabrics, including hand-painted silks, hand-drawn designs, and carefully restored floral prints.
Her latest collection is all about embracing the West's natural elegance and rugged authenticity with an Asian-inspired twist. Lee masterfully infused traditional Western silhouettes with vibrant florals, creating feminine wardrobe staples perfect for summer celebrations and travel.
This collection invites wearers to appreciate the beauty of nature with its custom prints inspired by the stunning colors of sunrises and sunsets. Each piece is crafted using only the finest lightweight fabrics, essential for warm Houston weather.
Speaking about her inspiration for the collection, Lee tells CultureMap, "This collection is a sartorial ode to the grandeur of the big Texas sky and beauty of nature in the West. By infusing iconic Western silhouettes with a blend of Asian-inspired florals and surprising hues, we've brought a modern and unique twist to these classic looks."
While Wild Dusk is available on line and in stores, those looking for even more of Lee's beautiful designs are in luck – the designer is opening a new atelier in Memorial this summer.
