EXCLUSIVE| Ones to Watch: Hana Cha

Hana Cha is another of our newly announced Ones To Watch. The Korean designer, who has a degree in Fine Art, is also a recent graduate of the London College of Fashion with an MA in Womenswear Fashion Design and Technology. Her graduate collection, named the 'Diffusion Between Proletariats and Bourgeois' is inspired by just that and won her the Womenswear Collection of the Year award. With a desire to explore the different attire of varying social classes, reinterpret class gaps and create something that combines these differing social styles, a stunning collection was born. In regards to her collection, Cha stated that “Dress reveals one’s ideas - it shouts out or speaks gently about an individual’s personality and identity to the outside world.” A strong aesthetic for a strong collection, we're very excited to see what ideas Hana Cha will be shouting out or speaking gently in the future.
