J. JS LEE is by Jackie JS LEE who was born in Seoul Korea and she came to London to take the Post Graduate Pattern Course at Central Saint Martin in 2007. And after her two years of working as a pattern cutter at Kisa London she came back to study at Central Saint Martin for her MA degree.

Her MA Graduation Collection in 2010 received much positive press and buyer attention, and also was rewarded the revered Harrods Award; with her collection being house in the window of the Knightsbridge Department Store. In March she launched her eponymous label, J JS LEE featuring sleek and chic androgynous pieces in tailoring. Her vision for creating a label which defines a modern woman who is concerned with looking sharp in a uniquely feminine way has been given a platform to launch itself.

saena_robesExhibition - ROBES Variation VII - - ÉTÉ 2016 -

30.06. - 20.08.2016, Leipziger Pl. 3, 10117 Berlin

The seventh collection “Robes/ Variation VII” of the Korean designer Saena Chun originates in her interest in traditional Korean clothing. It focuses on three elements which are characteristic for the traditional Korean dress hanbok: the material, the cut and the way of fabrication. Her designs are characterized by high quality materials, simple, but aesthetic cuts, transparence and elaborate craftsmanship.

The German photographer Torben Geeck made a photo series of Saenas ten robes will be shown during the exhibition. Also, a video will be displayed which depicts the production process and the movements of the robes through silhouettes (artistic performance: Peter Kisur (Honey-Suckle Company) and Chiaki Fujii/ camera: Alexander Georghiu/ cut: Peter Scholl/ sound: Jens Bogedain). About the designer:

Saena Chun studied at the prestigious French fashion school ESMOD Paris with a focus on “prêt-a-porter de femme”. In Paris, she worked for Sonia Rykiel and Chloé. In 2009, she founded her design studio “saena” in Berlin. In the past, she presented her collections regularly at fashion weeks in Paris, Seoul, Berlin and Singapore.

South Korean native found her place in Berlin, where she launched her collection that seems like a weareable art. Sojin Park, illustrator and designer, has created a really special label.

Although Assembled Half was born after graduating from EsMod Berlin, the idea of starting her own line accompanied Sojin, even before coming to Berlin. So, the style of the brand is well- defined, a mix of fantasy world and simple silhouettes: “I would describe it as unisex and comfortable. Everything is handmade and hand-painted. I love to give my designs the “unfinished” look."

Exceptional designs are made in small quantities; that’s what makes them even more special: “Every hand-painted piece has its own number so you can be sure you’re the only one in the world with the particular design.” Materials they use include light wool, cotton, linen, denim or even paper!

Sojin considers her label to be a mental expression, the representation of freedom in creativity. She finds the inspiration in old films & books, vintage haute couture and ancient cultures: “I don’t follow trends, I use my strong visual imagination instead.” We can see the artistic influence in all of her designs, even the production process starts with drawing/ painting the specific design: “It all starts with drawing and continues with picking the right fabric.”

Painting, Drawings

Assembled Half is all about unique designer pieces with an artistic feel. But the brand isn’t limiting itself. They are about to step into interior design: “I’m already planning to introduce Assembled Home line!”

SoJin Park is a Berlin-based fashion designer and illustrator. She graduated from EsMod Berlin in 2014 and a year later started her label Assembled Half for which she creates one-of-a-kind unisex clothing that could also double as artwork. Her work always begins with her drawings, and each piece is produced by screen-printing or painting directly on the fabric. The result is collections that mix fantastical elements, simple silhouettes, and the rawness of unfinished textiles.
