Son Jung Wan Spring 2014

For Spring 2014, inspired by Morocco, Son Jung Wan designed a collection that featured a lineup of “chalky whites and desert tones”.

Many pieces were clean cuts with blazer collars, draped tops, loose bottoms and mini frocks. The collection integrated different fabrics and hand embroideries that bear a resemblance to the same garments worn by the people of Morocco.

The super clean collection started off with fresh whites and neutral grays. Followed by yellows, beige and pinks. The majority of the Spring 2014 collection was minimal with asymmetric cuts. Wan closed out her show with shiny, glittery dresses and printed patterns. Another great runway put together by the talented Son Jung Wan.

Born and raised in South Korea, Son Jung Wan, majored in Industrial Craft at Sookmyung Women’s University and, after graduating, attended design school at International Mode in Seoul. In 1989, Son opened a small shop across the street from Galleria Department Store to house and sell her collection of stylish wears. Seeing how successful her store was, Galleria offered her a shop in shop only a year later and from there the Son Jung Wan brand grew. In 1993 Son earned the “Golden Needle Award” from the Korea Fashion Editor Association and in 2005, was named “Designer of the Year” by Seoul Metropolitan.

Today, Son Jung Wan is one of Korea’s most successful designers with over US 50 million dollars in sales for 2011. Her designs are sold at boutiques located across the USA including New York City, Palm Beach and the DC Metro area as well as over 50 department stores in South Korea.
