After attending the Francesca Liberatore Collection at the Moynihan Station, the next show on my list for New York Fashion Week was the DEMOO Parkchoonmoo Show at Skylight Clarkson Square. The collection brought a special warmness to my heart after finding out it was inspired by designer Choonmoo Park’s mother and their Korean culture. The designer has been surrounded by fashion her whole life, starting with the family’s apparel company. Without a doubt, the collection represented autumn/winter weather with ensembles layered in fur and wool. Park honored her country with the incorporation of silk and embroidery in her pieces. The palette was an overall shade of neutrals: black, greys, creams, and nudes, while adding a tiny splash of burgundy and plum.
My favorite piece was an oversized grey ribbed knit sweater with a black fur trim. The sweater looked comfortable and warm, as if anyone who wore it would instantly be at ease. I adored the variations of turtlenecks throughout the collection and how innovatively they were layered. You can’t forget the eye-catching autumn accessories! A shearling trooper hat and fur hand warmers were very chic. All the models had short hair styles; most had their hair parted in the middle and slicked into a tight bun, some even secured with chopsticks. As a finishing touch on Park’s roots, all models wore Korean “flower shoes.”
