Designer Profile: Eun Jeong

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

I have a weakness for designers who show at London Fashion Week. Their bold, creative and often colorful pieces appeal to my sense of inner playfulness and stir my imagination to re-think assumptions about clothing silhouettes. When I took a last minute trip to London for the A/W '09 collection, I felt like I was in design heaven! Unfortunately, I arrived a day too late to catch the LFW catwalk premiere of womenswear designer, Eun Jeong, whose all-white, Grecian-draped dresses for S/S '09 captured the 2008 Fashion Fringe award. After playing with darker colors for A/W '09, the Korean-born, Saint Martins-educated designer returned to a snow-white palette (with some splashes of metallic grey) for S/S '10. Hopefully, I will be able to make it to London to catch her runway presentation in person, but until then, I will have to visit Debut New York to catch these pieces in person. Here are some of my favorites from the Spring collection, which incorporate lace, ruffles and her signature draping.

another great designer profile. and being part Korean myself, I'm all about supporting Korean designers! I love her white/grey palette and esp the way she paired grey socks with white shoes! the peep toes in particular look darling with the grey socks peeping out. the collection definitely screams spring/summer. I hope you're able to catch her showing live in London!
