Christopher John Rogers’ designs are hard to miss. His audacious, “pragmatic glamour” (his words) is instantly identifiable, and decidedly not shy. It’s a bit ironic, then, that Rogers was visibly nervous to take the stage for his first-ever live interview last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Rogers joined the stage with fashion journalist and CBS Sunday Morning contributor Alina Cho to discuss his whirlwind ascent to the peak of the fashion industry. Despite Rogers’ escalating nerves beforehand, he was quickly at ease with Cho, allowing his unique charisma and candor to come through in a conversation about his career path, how to design with nuance, and what it means to dress women today.
