Eunkyung (Adrianne) Choi
This collection was inspired by the movie “Nobody Loves Me,” directed by Doris Dorrie. In it, suits are worn that identify rich versus poor. This evokes Upper-East-Side New Yorkers who have always been well-suited, while Lower East Siders tend to wear punk, raw outfits. The suit here has elements of both styles.
Asymmetrical pockets, front buttons and even the single tiny buttons on the sleeve vent are all different.
Model Aria is perfect for the look, fun, nonchalant but chic.
The garment is worn in many ways. Full-suited, hood up, or sleeve off, showing a favorite band T-shirt or with nothing underneath.
Meet the Designer
As a child in New York, I dreamed of becoming a designer while watching Project Runway. I chose sportswear because I wanted to include both women’s and men’s styles. For my future brand, I want to create an androgynous collection that is never restrained by age or gender. I love combining contemporary art and graphic elements together with an unconventional twist. I would like my brand to be timeless. As a child, I always wanted to work in the art field. Watching my first catwalk, I decided that I wanted to become a fashion designer – due to the chemistry that is created between the models and the clothing. When I design collections, I always try to create a look that both my friends and I would love to wear. My aesthetic is to combine contemporary art and fashion and bring unexpected elements to the garments.
