PARKCHOONMOO Fall/Winter 2015
Parkchoonmoo Fall/Winter 2015 was a curated palette of blacks, grays, and ivorys displayed on the runway to showcase Park’s designing skills; shape and texture. Each ensemble resembled a minimalist appeal but the collection collaborated with layers and folds of the garment adding intrigue and interest.
There was alway a combination of fabrics, texture and fur, could it be Persian Lamb, nylon or another high tech fiber newly introduced to consumers?
Fashion designer Choonmoo Park was born in Kimje, a small town in the southern part of Korea, where her family owned a children’s apparel company. A happy fixture in her father’s factory and showroom, Park was fascinated by the transformative and reflective nature of clothing and hence, her love of fashion was born. After her family moved to Seoul, Park attended Hong-Ik University, where she majored in industrial design, followed by the Kookje Fashion School where she studied fashion design. Her industrial design roots are evident in her fashion designs and have defined her compelling aesthetic. Park has been at the forefront of Korean avant garde design since 1988, when she launched her label DEMOO. Subsequently, she launched her eponymous line, PARKCHOONMOO. Responding to high demand, the designer opened her first retail store in 1988 in trendy Apgujungdong (Korea) and expanded quickly into other Asian markets. Since then, her designs have become iconic of a modern, architectural and yet fluid style. Underlying her edgy but wearable designs is an artistic sensibility and superb fit derived from couture roots translated into ready-to-wear. Park favors the striking impact of monotones such as black and white, punctuated by counterpoints of color, and layering to create new combinations that have become a signature of the PARKCHOONMOO aesthetic.
