Ji Won Choi is a New York based Korean designer, recently debuting her latest anticipated showcase at London Fashion Week with collaborator Adidas. The project was inspired by her graduate collection from Parsons - where she earned her degree in fashion design. The garments from the thesis collection were composed of vertical + horizontal intersecting stripes and perpendicular lines as well as heavy draping - inspired by her love for architecture as well as traditional Korean garments.

The pieces from the collection are described as a bold fashion statements, as she identifies her targeted consumer as "strong and confident - expressive, but with ease."
