Excellent wine and fashion…what more could a girl ask for on Valentine’s Day? That was my case when I checked out Sunhee’s newest looks on February 14th at Exit Art in Manhattan. For eleven years, Ecco Domani Wines of Italy has awarded over 1.3 million dollars in support of emerging designers. This year’s “style stars” received a grant of $25,000 to showcase their collections on fashion’s biggest stage – NYFW! I had the pleasure to view recipient Sunhee’s Autumn Winter 2012 collection, while watching the fashion media indulge in the tastes of Italy. Born in South Korea and a FIT grad, Sunhee is a former designer of Anna Sui, Elie Tahari and Anne Klein. In her designs she strives to truly understand what makes women feel beautiful and confident.The Sunhee collection was in short…bad a$$…complete with stretch leather leggings, asymmetrical wool jackets, hand crocheted dresses and I could go on. But, I won’t…check out the walk out the images for yourself! MEOW!
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
