A major fashion force in her native Korea for years, designer Son Jung Wan has seen a meteoric rise in the US after her debut collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York during the Fall 2011 season.
Since that season, Son Jung Wan has gone from new-name on the scene, to major celebrity favorite attracting well known fashion followers such as Kelly Rutherford. (Who couldn't contain her excitement and rushed on to the runway during the final walk to embrace the designer- photo here.)
For Spring 2012, Son Jung Wan is poised to set the fashion world on fire yet again, with a dazzling collection inspired by master artist Juan Miro's work.
"This season I was inspired by Spanish artist Juan Miro's 'Everything Under the Sun'. My muse for this collection is a wistful but mysterious lady basking in the dazzling rays of the sun, surrounded by beautiful, thick trees in the forest. This woman is lyrical and natural and admires everything coming from nature under the sun."
