So what's the story?

Founded in March 2002 by designers Christopher Crawford and Angela Deane, Christopher Deane has established itself as one of New York's most admired young labels, praised by retailers and editors alike for its sophisticated charm and elegant luxury. The collection is now available at over 250 specialty retailers, as well as select Intermix, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales Stores.

For the past five seasons, Christopher Deane has presented its collection as part of New York Fashion Week, including two highly lauded runway shows at Mao Space. The label's Fall 2005 collection was fully sponsored by Revlon and staged at the cosmetic giant's Manhattan headquarters, with actress Eva Mendes in attendance. "This promising young due has always delivered flirty party frocks that maintain a certain quirkiness. Fall's versions were charmers, but this season the designers also went that extra mile for day, infusing their designs with more than a soupcon of French flavor," enthused WWD of that collection. Most recently, Crawford and Deane worked with Covergirl on their Spring 2006 collection show; a venture that lead to a series of national commercials for the cosmetics brand, featuring the duo and their clothing.

With a focus on graceful, flattering designs in beautiful fabrications, Christopher Deane has garnered a profusion of recentpress coverage, including covers, feature stories and prominent editorial in W, WWD, Elle, Lucky, Teen Vogue, Surface and more. Additionally, the duo's designs have graced a number of top models and actresses for red-carpet events, television and editorial shoots, including Mischa Barton, Paris Hilton, Karolina Kurkova, Hilary Duff, Josie Maran, Mary Louise Parker, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Today Show's Bobbie Thomas. Their work was also featured in the Holiday 2006 campaign for Rolex.

Crawford, 27, and Deane, 29, met as students at the University of Florida, where he was a triple major in philosophy, sculpture andsociology and she, a double major in art and writing. Prior to founding the fashion label, Crawford taught in inner-city Los Angeles as a member of the Teach for America corps; he is also a former model with the prestigious Elite agency. Deane has lived in London, is a published photographer and has contributed work to the art troupe Hayvend.
