Christian Cowan NYFW FW2024 #photos by Cheryl Gorski

Christian Cowan presented Fall Winter 2024 at New York City’s The Harmonie Club, marking the first time the house has looked upon itself for the principal inspiration of a collection.

Expanding upon the house codes that have been present since the first runway offering, Christian Cowan Fall Winter 2024 is a celebration of the five-point star with unexpected textiles.

The five-point star symbolizes Cowan’s love of astronomy and the infinite possibilities that the celestial conjures. In Cowan’s early years growing up in Cambridge, his late father would recite his favorite quote by Plato,

“Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another”

Much like astronomy, Cowan believes fashion has the same ability, to transport us from one world to another, reminding us of the infinite possibilities that fashion allows our identity.

Diversity was another hit for this season’s runway show of Christian Cowan FW24, with half the lineup of former 90’s runway models that Cowan and his team have been scouting from all over the country to walk the show. Models included Emily Sandberg, Nelly Pakh, Jenny Brunt, Elanor Simon, Bethany Nagy, Giannie Couji, and Duyen.

To close Christian Cowan Fall Winter 2024, Christian Cowan partnered with Adobe to unveil the first-ever wearable and electronically reconfigurable garment crafted using Adobe Primrose technology, which debuted at Adobe’s MAX 2023 conference.

This unique collaboration between Adobe and Cowan shines a light on a path forward to a future where creatives can reimagine the limits of what’s possible in fashion design using revolutionary technology. The unique design uses laser-cut polymer dispersed liquid crystal “petals” that quickly change appearance into Cowan’s iconic stars, bringing the dress to life in less than half a second. Under each column of petals is an underlay with a flexible printed circuit board, allowing the petals to alternate and shift between shades of gray and ivory. The dynamic dress unlocks boundless possibilities in fashion design, showcasing how static clothing can be transformed into dynamic expressions of art and technology.
