NY Fashion Week Fall 2010 profile: Steven Oo


Name: Steven Oo

Major: MFA Fashion and Knitwear Design

Birthplace: Yangon, Myanmar

Materials: merino wool

Inspiration: The lines of Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas influenced Steven’s knitwear collection. Steven translated Fuksas’ curves into drapes and the buildings’ repetition into textures and cutout details. He combined several hand and hand-machine knitting techniques to create structure, weight,
ribbing, and texture.
