The Designers:

Chaahat Thakker
Chaahat Thakker presented her collection, DEPLICO, exploring construction and color through a variety of media including sculpture, kirigami, and collage. The results were dynamic silhouettes and playful details; challenging consumers’ notions of a wearable garment. Armed with a diverse visual arts background, Thakker explores fashion as equal parts wearable art and functional design.

Poli and Jo
Poli & Jo was born out of East End of London, Spitalfileds – the birth seed of effortless edginess and cool creativity. The Defender collection is Poli & Jo’s take on the cotton bag trend. Made with the same high-quality material Land Rover uses for its convertibles, these pieces provide the ultimate longevity and sustainability while staying classically stylish.

Farah Naz
Farah Naz designs are inspired by nature, specifically the Lotus; a delicate flower with many layered petals arrayed around a strong core. Rooted in the mud, the lotus rises to blossom clean and bright, symbolizing purity and resurrection. Hand embroidered with Swarovski crystals, rhinestones, crystals beads, pearls, sequins, silk threads adorning each look; the collection began with cobalt blues and carmine reds; transitioning through black to close the show in snowy whites. Fabrics used within the collection are tulle, French lace, silk, and cashmere.

Ron Ramos
Designer, Ron Ramos, connected his aesthetic of luxury and tailoring by playing with the idea of soft and hard. The collection used an opposition of heavy and light textiles from leather to georgette to crepe to crepe back satin, resulting in sultry-luxe workwear that transitions from day to night. For this FW19 collection, the pieces are interchangeable, additive, and layered amongst the collection itself or from within your existing closet. The ideologies of this collection genuinely convey the designer’s principle of dressing; embodying effortless luxury and strength.

Using cruelty-free silks, naturally dyed fabrics, and recycled materials, Seray Sacan incorporates her eco-friendly ethos into each of her pieces. The Boholective Wave collection of Minzou aims to mimic the elements, formation shapes, and stories of the universe’s galaxies. Incorporating tiny seed beading, hand-knitted ring attachments, and eco-friendly fabrics (such as raw silk) Minzkou weaves together and further embellishes these materials to create a collection that reflects the splendor and endless wonder of the stars glittering in our skies.

Jisu Lim
The collection of Jisu Lim is conceptual; reflecting the designer’s own interpretation of every object within a concept with modern, edgy and trendy aesthetic. “My collection is inspired by the ‘Post No Bill’ sign around construction area. This sign is the most familiar thing that I am exposed to in my daily life, as a New Yorker.” says the designer. “The phrase refers to many cities’ laws which forbid the posting of handbills, or any type of advertisement on the construction walls in order to keep the walls clean. However, I always think it is such an irony that the construction walls itself ruin the beauty of this city.” Jisu Lim’s collection is about recreation, circulation, and the beauty inside of the ugliness.

NC by Charly Nzogang
The NC by Charly Nzogang collection showcased an eclectic, pragmatic, and ecological view of the industry. Each piece from the collection metamorphosizes into the future with flowing pieces armed with interesting gathered details and necklines. Designed for women who love change and modern architecture; the NC woman likes to bring the spectacular in to her fashion every day, while remaining chic, elegant, and sexy.

Jyu Ri Ri
Jyu Ri Ri’s FW19 collection is titled “EGO-FRIENDLY”. Overcoming opposition from family regarding her desire to pursue fashion, Jyu Ri Ri respects women who fight for what they want. “EGO-FRIENDLY” is an ode to the strong-willed women, and is intended to be gear for warriors in their daily lives. The designer served up this dynamic collection made with materials like Mohair, Velvet, Embroidery, Extra Fine Wool creating cozy and chic looks.
