Soo Jung Sung, Fashion Designer, and Ivanka Georgiev, Textile Designer, collaborated on a womenswear collection to premier in New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on February 2nd, 2008.
Soo Jung Sung found inspiration for her collection in the movie Blue Swallow (Cheong-yeon) about Park Kyung-won, the first female aviator in Korea. Based the early 1900s when Korean society was conservative and discriminative against women, the heroine had passion and an independent spirit for her job. Pilot uniforms and Asian influences are reinterpreted by Soo Jung who was born in Yeosu, Korea and raised in Seoul, Korea.
