MAX GENGOS hits NYFW with RESPONSIBLE LUXURY RTW made in NYC.
MAX GENGOS, (pronounced jenn-joss) the young, new designer about to take the fashion world by storm.
At the age of only twenty-five, Max already has some impressive credentials under his belt: notably TEEN VOGUE’s recent commission from the designer to create a custom look for KYLIE JENNER that appeared in the magazine’s May 2015 cover story. The Ivy League Cornell University grad (who also trained at FIT, Parsons, and RISD) started his career designing for CALVIN KLEIN at the age of twenty-one and is now at the helm of his own brand.
Max’s concept of RESPONSIBLE LUXURY is reflected in his dedication to sustainable and ethical production: from working with an Italian mill using photovoltaic cells for renewable energy, to closely monitoring his NYC ‘slow-tech’ production facilities.
MAX GENGOS’ forthcoming Spring 2016 collection, ‘NEO-TROPICO’ builds upon the designer’s signature form-flattering silhouettes and infinity hems with the addition of tailoring and outerwear, as well as a fresh, modern color palette beyond his core neutrals. Included in the new collection will be Max’s leather-alternative “Vegan Moto Jacket,” which is already a favorite among brand insiders.
New York has finally found its next fashion darling. With his talent, experience, and not to mention good looks, MAX GENGOS is just who we have been waiting for. It is no wonder he has been offered one of the few highly coveted spots on the CFDA’s calendar for New York Fashion Week.
MAX GENGOS Spring 2016 Presentation: Friday, September 11, 4:30-7:30pm.
