blossoming like a flower

Changwon born South Korean upcoming designer Sook Kim
found a way to convey her own idea of glamour through a
couture-like approach involving flower shapes, namely a large
purple hibiscus, creating sculptural, sophisticated dresses in a
gripping capsule collection she called ”Beauty of Fullness”
referring to her feminine silhouettes with emphasized hips
mimicking the delicate layers of mallow flowers.

Sook gained a significant experience interning while she
was studying at Zac Posen and Diane von Furstenberg before
graduating from SCAD, the Savannah College of Art and
Design, 'The University for Creative Careers'™, where ”fashion
students are encouraged to develop creative and intellectual
thinking, inventive design skills and practical expertise necessary
to succeed in careers in the global fashion industry” and Sook
proves to have what it takes to change the face of fashion.

Her unique take on the contemporary cocktail frock includes
labor-intensive pieces in silk satin and organza (she came
to cut and sew over 50 different pieces of rich textured fabrics
with a origami-like technique to acheive rounded shapes)

often paired with huge purple, hibiscus-inspired neck pieces
made of horsehair and silk tulle carefully hand sewn together.
The full beauty of fullness.

  1. Dearest Elisabetta,
    Sook is trying hard to create human blossoms! I had to laugh however with the tea-cozy effect in the second and third picture. When I look around here in the southeast of the USA there are not many that need much padding on their hips!
    Hugs to you,
