Christian Tinson

"In the fashion industry it takes that one great design to achieve superior status."

Christian Tinson was born in the vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana, better known around the world as the “Big Easy”. Being a Navy brat, he and his family never settled in one state. He attended school in Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Virginia. While in junior high school Christian was bitten by the fashion bug. At the age of 17, he decided that designing a T-shirt was his first brilliant idea. He wasn’t sure what he was going to do or how he was going to accomplish it since he did not have any sewing experience. His first designed shirt was for himself, “I was so excited to put it on”. Christian reminisces. He wanted to start a new trend, hand painted designs on all types of clothing.

Christian learned to sew at the age of 20 at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Though it took him a while, he finally got it. His biggest influences are Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, Ralph Lauren, Coogie, and Miskeen Originals. “I love the way they all come up with new and innovative ideas for men’s and women’s urban wear.” Christian was highly influenced by 90’s urban wear and 20th century urban wear. His design style is eccentric, different, thoughtful, and somewhat inspiring. Christian explains, “by inspiring I mean I try to make a statement on every piece I design, I paint what I see in my mind’s eye regarding my client, their aura, demeanor, and character”.

Designer Facts:
If I could bring back any fashion trend it would be the 90’s urban wear.
