In The Showroom: Charles Chang-Lima Spring 2009

There is the kind of designer who shows a reinvented version of their brand every season, complete with a succinct conceptual inspiration and runway show, and then there is the kind of designer who doesn't show during Fashion Week and who, because of that, can whip a collection with clothing of all varieties to suit the needs of their buyers and showroom reps. Charles Chang-Lima is of the latter group and we have to say, it kind of makes sense. His Spring 09 collection was a kaleidoscope of colors and showed pieces that ranged from rocker-chic to daytime ladylike. There was a focus on fabric manipulation (the braided bodices were our favorite example) and on slinky silhouettes but, overall, there was something for everyone.
