Hot off the heels of opening her Montrose boutique, Christy Lynn (christylynn.com) has dazzled the Houston shopping scene. We caught up with the design darling to learn more about her namesake brand.
Tell us more about where you seek your inspiration.
Th e spring/summer collection was inspired by travel. My father is a scuba diver, so we traveled a lot to the Caribbean and spent summers by the water. I took that inspiration and dug deep into my roots—what it means to be inspired by nature, etc.
What can we expect from this collection?
It really takes a lot of floral, animal prints and derives inspiration from nature.
How do you dress the modern romantic woman?
I seek inspiration from the big city life—fast paced and hard working, but then I have this desire for travel. Being in a dreamscape of where I want to be next. I like to mix these two aesthetics together. Polished and presentable but then romantic and chic.
What have you noticed about the Houston shopper?
Houston women love fashion. They love to be different in the way they show their personality.
What does the future hold? Sky’s the limit...
I have this idea that our collection will have a good response internationally. Ideally I would love to show out of Paris one day... that’s the dream.
