Fashion designer Soojin-Lee debuts at NYFW

Soojin-Lee, a London based designer debuted her Byzantine art inspired Spring/Summer 2013 collection during New York Fashion Week (NYFW) produced by Resk ‘Que, a celebrity fashion producer at iFashion Network's emerging designer showcase. The collection reveals a characteristic of circular Hellenistic motifs of gold, dramatic puffy sleeves and a certain pre-disposition to a gothic appeal, inviting viewers to conjure up patterns and bold colors. 

The show opened with flesh colored fitted lacey embroidered skirts, slowly transgressing into to short sartorial bubble gum pink dresses, draped in white embroidered lace. The pieces were charming, practical and playful.  

The skirts slowly progressed into brighter colors such as pinks, purples, blues and oranges, with Byzantine patterns and jewels. They gained more character by the clever blend of these jewels and circular motifs of orange/gold and blue/gold.

The infusion of plainness, laces and Byzantine inspired circular motifs and crosses was effortlessly done. The pairing of different material so as to compartmentalize different aspects of the dress was very modern and something that can find a practical-yet fashionable purpose off the runway.

“I am inspired from the Byzantine period. I wanted to show the development of the Byzantine to the Modern period. The collection begins with quite simple element of Byzantine, the last few pieces reveals the Modern twist” Stated Soojin-Lee, the creative director and head designer.  Soojin-Lee’s previous work with such prestigious fashion houses such as Hussein Chalayan, Emilio de la Morena and Alexander McQueen helped built her very strong label’s foundation and aspirations.  “ Her Flawless collection of beautiful garments in silk with flower motif embroidery and laced details were a hit.” -Written Opencaravan.com

The runway show was a standing room only, attended by a multitude of spectators, buyers and special invited fashion professionals who were just as curious to see the new hand work of Soojin-Lee’s international collection debut.
