Connecticut based designer and stylist Chinnyere La’Rose McPherson,(aka Chinn) is a designer and stylist who has been designing literally since the fifth grade. The 23-year-old Connecticut native loves color and texture and draws her inspiration from everything around her. She says her collection, Color Eruption (shown below) was inspired by a fish that she drew in elementary school. She holds associate degrees in both fashion design and fashion merchandising from Fisher College in Massachusetts and plans to complete her studies at New York’s prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in the near future.
I love talented and creative people and when I came across Chinn’s designs I knew I wanted to feature her. I love her use of color and the mix of fabric in her designs. I also love her styling (I mean who else would pair a bow tie with a formal black and white glen plaid, with leather trimmings and fringed fishtail dress?) Connecticut has got talent!
