Christian Cowan honours his roots in Spain at NY Fashion Week

NEW YORK — Christian Cowan always brings playful, colorful looks to the runway and his spring 2020 collection was no exception.

There were electric reds, fluorescent pinks, voluptuous feathers, metallics and sequins. But there were also softer tones, inspired by the Spanish coastal city where he spent time by the beach growing up. Cowan’s family is from Galicia in Spain, a village called Moana. Lace and ruffles were nods to the women he grew up with there. Cowan’s grandmother made lace.

Sitting front row Tuesday was Meghan Trainor, who Cowan dressed for the LA Pride Festival. She said the look was revealing. Trainor says Cowan gave her confidence and now, she loves her body more.

YouTuber Patrick Starrr was also on Cowan’s front row.
