Doo.Ri Runway Godet-Sleeve Top
Known for her expert draping techniques that beautifully highlight a woman's shape, designer Doo-Ri Chung has been wooing critics and customers alike since her first collection hit the catwalk in 2003. Chung creates modern and sophisticated looks characterized by their fluidity and architectural detailing; fabrics are both hard and soft (matte jerseys and leathers) making for an interesting play on the feminine and masculine. In 2006, she was awarded both the coveted CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award and the CFDA Swarovski/Perry Ellis Award. A top graduate of Parsons School of Design, Chung worked with the legendary Geoffrey Beene for five years before launching her eponymous label.
