Although this was only her third season showing in New York, Son Jung Wan has already begun to make her mark on American fashion. With a style that blends Asian and Western sensibilities, she has gained a following with celebrities like always chic Kelly Rutherford who could be seen sitting in the front row of her show.
For Fall 2012, Son Jung Wan took her inspiration from contemporary artist Marc Quinn’s series entitled Winter Garden. Son Jung Wan captured the mood of the Quinn works with bold vibrant colors and mixing fabrics and textures. The floral prints and bright colors, normally reserved for Spring collections, surprisingly in color combinations and application seem right on target for Fall, lending a brightness to the gray days of winter.
Presenting a collection that encompassed looks for every part of a woman’s life from sophisticated daywear to elegant eveningwear, Son Jung Wan once again proved why she is the number one selling designer in Korea.
