Leather and Fur Collide for Fall 2012

Fall 2012 from Son Jung Wan

Returning to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week to present her S/S 2013 collection is one of my favorite designers, Son Jung Wan.  I decided to publish some of the pictures I took last February of her Fall/Winter 2012 collection to illustrate the high level of skill and beauty at which this designer operates.  I particularly love the way she combines textures like fur, leather, and opulent woven fabrics to create spectacular pieces that transcend mere fashion and take it into the realm of art.  This is why I love going to NYC and experiencing the magic of New York Fashion Week.  Below is a short biography from www.mbfashionweek.com to let you know a little more about her!

Born & raised in Korea, Son Jung Wan, majored in Industrial Craft at Sookmyung Women's University and after graduating, went to design school at International Mode in Seoul. In 1989, Son decided to open a small shop just across the street from Galleria Department Store so she could house & sell her then small collection of stylish wears. Seeing how successful her store was, Galleria offered her a shop in shop only a year later and from there the Son Jung Wan brand grew. In 1993, Son received the “Golden Needle Award” from the Korea Fashion Editor Association and in 2005, was named “Designer of the Year” by Seoul Metropolitan.

The luxurious collections designed by Son Jung Wan consist of impeccably executed separates including tops, skirts, shorts, pants, and jackets as well as dresses all made from the must sumptuous fabrics. With each collection, Son captures the dual nature of women and how they like to dress; at times pretty and feminine, other times chic and stylish & still others sexy.
