Another mesmerizing show displayed at NYFW last week showcasing Concept Korea’s talented designer brands LIE and Greedilous. Concept Korea is a collaborative project with the main aim to promote Korean fashion designers. Held at the Gallery Spring Studios the show had an atmosphere that was not to be missed, with a number of celebrity attendees including Ty Hunter, Shaun Ross, Claire Sulmers, Simon Collins and June Ambrose who attended in a beautiful outfit that caught our eye with vibrant embellishing, midi skirt and an oversized fur hat.
Both designers Chung Chung Lee (LIE) and Younhee Park (Greedilous) had a variety of looks displaying new trends and unusual designs.
Lee Chung Chung grew up in Fashion with both parents being in the industry and gained guidance at Savile Row, after developing his tailoring skills this later lead him to start his own clothing line.
Lie displayed a great example of colour and on-trend details, off the shoulder ruffles and check played a strong part through the collection including a clash of prints, flared popper tape bottoms in a horizon blue and plaid kept the collection looking refreshing and unusual with a youthful vibe.
Younhee Park has continued to capture a unique take on Haute Couture mixed with masculine undertones, this seasons collection has futuristic feel whilst still keeping a focus on sustainability.
Bold colours started the show off mixed with masculine silhouettes and ruffles, pearl details continued throughout and merging looks with feminine and masculine shapes where seen throughout this seasons by Younhee Park.
After a memorable display at NYFW, next season is highly anticipated, Fashion Thirst look forward to seeing more great talent from Concept Korea who continue to showcase unique designers that stand out in the industry.
