It’s here! – doo.ri for Impulse only at Macy’s! Doo-Ri Chung’s designs have been seen on First Lady Michelle Obama as well as on the runways at New York Fashion Week, and now they can now be yours at a very affordable price! Earlier this week on Wednesday, the award-winning designer launched her first collection for Macy’s. Chung’s elegant draping techniques and modern feminine style are translated into pieces that are priced on average from $39-$159. Offering a collection in her signature style but at a different price point allows her to reach a wider audience, which the designer thinks is great! The pieces in the collection range from jersey dresses to sweaters and outerwear.
Chung, a graduate of Parsons: The New School of Design, is an established designer known for her technical brilliance and iconic draping abilities. She has quickly established her brand in the industry since the launch of her debut collection and has been recognized as one of America’s top designers. Chung was named a finalist in the first-ever Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF) back in 2004, and in 2006, won the Samsung Fashion Design Fund Award, CFDA Swarovski/Perry Ellis Award for Emerging Design Talent and the CVFF grand prize. She was also the first American designer to be nominated for Switzerland’s Stella Award.
