Sohee Park, known as “Miss Sohee” is the 25-year-old Womenswear Designer. Raised in Seoul and now based in west London, the Central Saint Martins graduate has a taste inspired by trinkets of the past, combined with her signature ultra-feminine panache.
Park translate her sketches from the page into real life to create vibrant silhouettes that she defines as demi-couture. Her first collection, titled ‘The Girl In Full Bloom,’ was inspired by the concept evolution from girl to woman, paralleling the designer’s own transition and her progression from illustration to design.
Shortly after graduating from Central Saint Martins, Park’s gowns were featured on the cover of LOVE Magazine’s, alongside press in British Vogue, Vogue Korea, Vogue Greece, Vogue Singapore, L’officiel, Elle, Vanity Fair and W to name a few.
Miss Sohee continues to explore the craftsmanship and artisanal message. Her fall 2021 couture collection is an intimate ode to childhood holidays spent by the sea with her beloved grandmother. The collection fully corresponds to the successful style of the young designer and, at the same time, is quite original.

“Muses inspire artists and artists inspire the world.” Jeremy Scott
Jeremy Scott dedicates Moschino ss 2020 collection to Pablo Picasso and his muses. Picasso’s signature motifs like guitars and harlequins, riffs on cubism and abstraction made up the bulk of the collection. In his interpretations of Picasso, Jeremy Scott, as always, too straightforward, but guessing the masterpieces of the artist is more interesting than previous Moschino collections with Barbie or McDonald’s.

Traditionally it includes ornamental decorations, silhouettes, scenes etc.
Vytynankas are made using scissors, special small knife cutters, passed from generation to generation, as well as knives, axes, and other implements. The most usual materiall for Vytynanka is paper (white or colored).
