Up next on my New York Fashion Week list of favorite shows is Concept Korea! Concept Korea is a collaborative project that promotes Korean designers and assist them in their attempts to break into the U.S fashion market. Each season this project showcases the designs of three designers, one of which has caught my eye since last season, Greedilous by Youhee Park.
This season, Greedlious found inspiration in “The Persistence of Memory”, which is a 1930’s painting by Salvador Dali. Park interpreted this painting through rhythmic patterns and abstract objects in her designs. This could be seen on menswear suits and A-line women dresses that had a beautiful flared bottom. She also added in the investigative work of Sherlock Holmes by referencing the movies mood and background history. However, she translated this through her designs in a unique yet fabulous way! Finger waves, tailored suit, hand gloves, and colored fur were necessities for the Greedilous detectives that catwalk down the runway! My mouth literally dropped when the first model killed the runway with a red suit, oversized black sunnies, and a bright pink fur coat drenched over her shoulders. I don’t know what case she was about to solve, but I know I definitely wanted to be apart of her investigative team! 🙂
Overall, the collection was very feminine with casual silhouettes and a cool girl swag! I was obsessed with every design that came down the runway and could see adding various pieces of the collection to my wardrobe. Take a look a below at my favorite looks from the collection and let me know which piece is your favorite too! 🙂
Thanks for the invite Factory PR!
