Chris Gelinas started his foray into fashion with what he called “a little white lie.” While still a business student at the University of Windsor in his native Canada, Gelinas applied for an internship at Marc Jacobs in New York.

“I showed up and didn’t even know how to thread a needle,” the designer said last week in his Garment District studio, where he’s been working on his label CG’s launch collection. “It was spring ’06 at Marc — the collection with the marching band — and after that show, I was hooked.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
