Fashion Graduate Profile: Christine (Ligan) De Carvalho

Christine (Ligan) De Carvalho, 2006 BFA Fashion and Textile Design Graduate

Christine studied at Studio Berçot through the Sister City Scholarship Exchange Program during her junior year, and was the grand prize winner in the Concours International de Dessins Dentelles et Broideries. She won the 2005 Grand Prix Gagner Pour Dentelle Mode. The competition was held among 26 fashion design schools throughout France and Belgium.  Christine’s award included two thousand Euros and a weeklong internship with D.M.C. Group.  She also interned with French designer Delphine Murat.

After graduating, Christine landed an internship with John Galliano. Her designs ended up on the runway. She feels her experience was not only amazing, but also occurred during a historically pivotal moment for John Galliano as she was there when Steven Robinson died.  For almost 20 years, Steven was regarded as Galliano’s right-hand-man, confidant and alter ego.

Christine also designed the debut collection for the company Artless. As the first collection was a commercial success in France, Spain and England, they asked her to design more collections. She is presently working on creating textile designs and prints at Christian Lacroix.
