There are times, my dears, when fashion moves far beyond the runaway or the street and becomes something much more like high art.
Seoul Korea-born and Fashion Institute of NYC educated Bonkuk Koo is one of those designers. His is the kind of creative mind whose imagination stretches past the confines of the ordinary.
“I want to make a dress which can be exhibited in her living-room rather than kept in her closet, “ say Koo on his blog. And boy, does he deliver!
Bonkuk Koo makes dresses inspired by the storm-tossed waves of the Hudson river, the intricate detailing of an antique guitar, by leaves in the wind, flower petals or geometric patterns.
These dresses that look more like sculpture and make the ladies wearing them – look as if they stepped from a dream.
Oh Bonkuk Koo, Olive loves you!
Hand-cut, crafted with care, each of his fantastical pieces is stunning look at what miracles can be achieved with mere scissor, thread and fabric. This young fella is a talent on the rise, my darlings! So keep your eyes open wide for his utterly unbelievable creations!
I attended his show this morning at New York Fashion Week – A total breath-taker! Here are a couple pics from Stoli. More pics to come soon XOXO
