Get the Story Behind Hallmark Channel’s New Movie ‘Christmas By Design’

Christmas By Design

When it comes to Christmas there are plenty of us who love to deck the halls with lights and garland. Many of also love to dress the part in our favorite holiday themed pajamas or ugly Christmas sweaters. In Hallmark Channel’s latest Christmas movie, a fashion designer gets the chance to design a piece for a national department store but can she find the inspiration to create something Christmas-worthy?

Here’s everything we know about Christmas by Design including a Parade.com exclusive sneak peek.

What is Christmas By Design about?

Luxury fashion designer, Charlotte (Rebecca Dalton), tirelessly works to make a name for herself from her New York City boutique, Alastair. So, she’s over the moon when she learns she’s been selected to participate in a design competition for the renowned Warwick’s department store.

The assignment—create a Christmas-themed collection for their home & family brand. There’s just one problem: Charlotte is just not that into Christmas, and she can barely remember the last time she put aside her work long enough to enjoy some quality time with her family. When a pipe bursts in her apartment, she decides to take it as an omen and returns home for a family Christmas that she hopes will quickly inspire her next design.

Charlotte arrives just in time to be thrown into the town’s annual 12-days-of-Elfcapades event, where she meets a handsome mechanic, Spencer (Jonathan Keltz), who helps run the festivities. Despite a rocky first impression the two form a deep connection, giving Charlotte the creative spark she so desperately needs to inspire a new Christmas design… one that is completely different from anything she’s done before.
