With a degree in designing from FIT and 28 years of dressing the most elegant women in designer clothing, Christina Makowsky created the Chrisitna Makowsky Brand. The Christina Makowsky Brand is an intelligent iconic collection of classic fashion pieces that any well dressed girl should have in her wardrobe. The collection is committed to providing the highest quality clothing made from the finest fabrics with enduring workmanship. Each piece is intelligently designed and inspired by iconic timeless classics.
Prior to the Christina Makowsky Brand, Christina founded and owned Georgina Boutiques, a luxury designer retail chain with locations in Hewlitt, Manhasset, and East Hampton. Christina opened Georgina shortly after earning her degree from FIT. She was a pioneer in discovering new designs and bringing them to Long Island. Georgina exclusively sold Michael Kors from his first collection until he opened his own store at the Americana in Manhasset. Other designers such as Zac Pozen, Peter Som, Celine, Stella McCartney and many other designers were all first sold at Georgina. Christina says, “It was the most exciting part of my business finding new talent. I was also the first to bring designer clothes to the Super Saturday Event in the Hamptons.”
Christina was a stylist at Georgina before it had a name, dressing her clients from head to toe giving them complete wardrobes and building their fashion image. Georgina was a creative outlet that allowed Christina to express her fashion sense while staying close to home and raising her five children.
In 2009 feeling restless and not being very stimulated in retail, Christina decided to go back to her true passion of designing her own luxury brand. Christina says, “This has been the most extraordinary time of my life, building a brand that is my pure sense of style. It is an exclusive collection made in limited edition. It is made in America and sold at charity trunk shows as well as private appointments across the nation and Europe.”
Christina claims that some of the chicest women in the world are wearing her brand. She says, “Hollywood has been a great fan of mine because of my simple cutting edge style that takes them form the red carpet to the polo lounge, it just works. It is my dream and I am living it.” Her select styles will come with a limited edition certificate. A percentage of Chrisina Makowsky’s trunk show sales will be given to charity.
