Lee Young Hee is by far my favorite fashion designer…and I don’t have too many favorites. I just can’t get enough of her work! Of course, I am a bit biased because of my deep attraction for the beauty and simple elegance of the traditional Korean dress (more like a gown), called a Hanbok.
Lee Young Hee takes the Hanbok, a deeply rooted icon of traditional, Korean culture, and modernizes the piece while maintaining its original qualities: the colorful fabric, simple lines and intricate designs. Her dresses are a fine balance between the global and traditional; and the way her dresses fold and move are just…soft (in a good way). You just got to see it to believe it.
Keith Loutit is one amazing man. A Sydney photographer and film pro, he is one of the leading artists experimenting with a technique called tilt-shift/time-lapse. Using this technique he speeds up certain objects in the film and tweaks with the scale of props to create a playhouse illusion…it’s a trip. Filming grand sites, he manipulates these well-known areas, causing individuals to displace themselves from a world they are so consumed in and shifting their paradigm into a simpler, less anxious lens. Cool! Check out his official page here.
Known for his “dirty style” David Choe is a Ktown originated painter whose work started on the streets, literally. His professional work can be distinguished with its raw, graphic, and layered qualities, but the most distinctive is the presence of graffiti influence. Following street culture, his work bleeds nonconformities to the system, his style shows carelessness to rules, and his intentions are not governed by anything but himself.
