Miss Sohee, haute couture’s rising star

Sohee Park is a high-fashion visionary dressing your favourite celebs in couture

Sohee Park, more commonly known as ‘Miss Sohee’, is a London based womenswear designer who specialises in Haute Couture. Originally from Seoul in South Korea, Park became enthralled with fashion at a young age through the inspiration she felt watching her grandmother sew traditional embroidery.

In an interview with Vogue, Park said: “I grew up being inspired by her because she was such a skilled sewer who loved to embroider everything.” She added: “I lived in the city, but going to her house by the seaside was total escapism. [My grandmother] lived in her own world.”

Park’s inherited talent and passion for design led her to study at the prestigious college of Central Saint Martins, a school which has fostered the likes of Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Stella McCartney, in which she studied fashion design for three years. However, her time studying in 2020 faced the trials and tribulations of the Covid-19 pandemic.

While designing her graduate collection labelled ‘Girl In Full Bloom’, Park encountered many obstacles. She was creating five couture gowns in her small apartment, but was running out of fabric during a country-wide lockdown – which closed all fabric stores. Yet, despite feeling as though the odds were against her, ‘Girl In Full Bloom’ became one of the most breathtaking graduate collections CSM has ever produced. 

Park’s alluring colour use of luminous pinks, blues and greens in partnership with the blooming floral silhouettes, creates an imagery of fairytale divinity – a collection which also adorned the cover of Love magazine. The designs were inspired by the concept of “evolution from girl to woman, paralleling the designer’s own transition and her progression from illustration to couture” as stated on her website:

The famous peony gown has since been worn by Miley Cyrus and was even showcased in an exhibition in London called Hallyu, which was an ode to South Korean culture.

Since Park’s graduate collection which launched three years ago, she has since created three incredible Haute Couture collections which have revitalised luxury innovation within the fashion industry. The Covid-19 pandemic claimed Haute fashion as superfluous, but its much anticipated comeback is refreshing to see and can be witnessed through her designs. 

Park’s most honourable collaborations are with Christian Cowan and Dolce & Gabbana, who have helped cement her reputation as couture’s new rising star. For a young designer not four years out of university, to be so successful in her craft, leaves one in awe at such natural talent and ingenious imagination. 

Sohee Park is not a designer to keep an eye out for, she is one you will be sure to see.
