Fashion and style came naturally to 40-year-old Christina Oh, even if the English language didn’t. She moved to Seattle 13 years ago from South Korea and realized quickly how dressing impeccably helped her get further when there was a language barrier.
That was years ago; now Oh speaks perfect English and she’s as chic as ever. “I’ve always been told I have good style, so I decided to start a blog, Christina’s Style,” she says. “I wanted to focus on women over 40, sharing cosmetic tips, fashion tips and style tips. I wanted to make every woman beautiful.”
But this is probably not your typical fashion blog. Followers get a glimpse of Oh as she hits Cannes for the Christian Dior 2016 Cruise runway show (yes, she just returned from her third invite in a row); attends soirées and events with Nicolas Bos, the creative director for Van Cleef & Arpels; and rubs elbows with some of Atlanta’s most elite— all while dressed, photographed and chronicling it like a glamorous fashion model.
Her newest fashion venture is Oh2 by Christina Oh, a high-end fur line she launched at a trunk show at the St. Regis this year. “The furs are from Milano, Italy, and South Korea,” she says. “The line is classy and very fun, and we are marketing to a demographic as young as 30 to early 50s. So far the line focuses mostly on mink, fox, sable and lynx, with python and crocodile accents.” She plans on the line eventually including shoes, hats, bags and jewelry—a complete fashion line all under the Oh2 by Christina Oh name.
Currently she’s sold pieces to personal buyers, and is working on a wholesale deal with Neiman Marcus. “I will definitely have more trunk shows,” Oh says, “and will be donating furs to charity events like the Ballet Ball and the Thriving Children Gala. I want to give back to the Atlanta community.”
She lives in Buckhead with her husband, Edward, and their three sons, Jeffrey, Eugene and Michael. “I love it here. It’s such a good neighborhood with such good schools,” she says. “The Southern hospitality, food and weather are perfect.”
