Miss Sohee is taking the fashion world by storm. If you haven’t heard of what is being called the next generation of Haute Couture yet, you certainly will soon. The Korean-born, London-based designer will be displaying her new line for Dolce and Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week in February 2022.
Fashion During Lockdown
While most of the world stopped, 25-year-old fashion lover Sohee Park kept working toward her goals. Park graduated from London’s Central Saint Martins, a world-renowned art and design college, in 2020. In the same year, her designs began to make appearances in fashion magazines and on some of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood. Cardi B wore one of her designs at the Europe and American music event held by Billboard, and then wore the black floral dress for her promotional photo for “Women of the Year.” By 2021, Gemma Chan of “Eternals” fame wore a Miss Sohee design at the Rome Film Festival. The gorgeous black dress was made of suede, featured a bare midriff, and was adorned in crystals.
Getting Noticed By Fashion Greats
Before she knew it, Sohee was in contact with Dolce & Gabbana, Italian emporers of the fashion world. The duo noticed her work almost immediately, appreciating the way she studies shapes and volume to create bold, innovative styles. They feel her authenticity and freshness shone through in her love for “fatto a mano,” a term that means “handmade.” Artisinal designs are very important to Dolce & Gabbana, whose own lines are meticulously created and handmade. The Italian fashion designers hope to bring more youth into the fashion world. They started with Harris Reed’s Met Gala dress, and now they’re focused on Miss Sohee. More young artisanal designers are likely to follow suit as well.
A Look at Miss Sohee’s Inspiration
Park’s designs for Moss Sohee are all about paying attention to detail. From each intricately placed crystal on a gown to voluminous silhouettes in rainbow colors, Park puts love into every stitch of her work, which she describes as “demi-couture.” The designer, who got her start drawing fashion illustrations, aims to create sustainable products and finds her inspiration in paintings, fashion photos, and even flower petals. In fact, she often uses floral embellishments in her designs. She also states that she’s always been intrigued with vintage clothing and antique furniture, and hopes to display that love in her designs.
Collaboration With Dolce & Gabbana
So, what can you expect from Dolce & Gabbana’s collaboration with Miss Sohee? Truth be told, you won’t know until you see it, but it’s sure to catch the eyes of Miley Cyrus, Bella Hadid, Ariana Grande, and many other celebrities who have shown interest in the label. Her first collection, which was called “The Girl In Full Bloom,” was created based on the evolution of girl to woman and showcased Park’s own transition from illustrating fashion to designing it. She’s been featured in LOVE Magazine, Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, and a variety of other fashion magazines. If any of her 2022 line follows suit, you can expect volume, long trains, and a range of breathtaking designs.
The young designer, who loves to show off her own fashionable outfits on Instagram sometimes, says, “I am truly excited to see my creative vision come to life.” One thing is certain: everybody in the fashion world is looking forward to the presence of Miss Sohee at Milan Fashion Week 2022. And if lockdown couldn’t stop Sohee Park from graduating from design school and making her way into the fashion world, then nothing will stop this woman from creating high-end fashions that the haute couture crowd will fall in love with.
