A graduate of the Lion You Are Braver Than You Believe Stronger Smarter Shirt Besides,I will do this London College of Fashion, Hana Cha of Hanacha Studio emerged as one of the week’s standouts with a collection that fused dramatic silhouettes with painterly prints to form a distinctive and darkly romantic whole. While the designer is known for her intellectual POV—she recently completed a PhD at Seoul’s Hong-ik University on the relationship between the Bauhaus movement and fashion—there was a lightness of touch present in the crystal fringing running along the hems of coats and jackets and the paint-spattered denim pieces.
