Happy Friday everyone, in today’s Look Book Friday we are looking at up and coming designer Kaylee Cho. Kaylee Cho is a Korean designer who is based in Seol, but was educated in the United States. Kaylee lived in Seattle where she learned pattern making, after being laid off from her corporate job during the financial crisis of 2007. This unleashed a forgotten passion in Kaylee, and she relocate to Los Angles to enroll in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where she graduated with a degree in Fashion Design. Upon graduation she freelanced as a pattern maker and seamstress and then moved to New York where she interned with Assembly, New York. In 2012 she returned to Korea where she launched her own line which debuted in the fall of 2013.
Kaylee is certainly one designer to keep your eye on. Her S/S 2014 collection embodies the minimalist trend that has dominated the runways but with a vaguely masculine and utilitarian edge. The non conforming fits, and unexpected lines breath youthful energy in to the collection. And the understated neutral palette offsets the untraditional cuts found in the garments. I mean I am at total sucker for a cropped moto jacket, and this gray one with the tuxedo lapel is the epitome of urban chic. Am I wrong? And it also comes in white, perfect for spring. I am also loving the black scooped neck dress with the over sized pockets and this deep v neck vest. And the leather tee? Just beautiful. And stay tuned I will be covering her gorgeous fall line in the near future.
