After dropping out of the Parison School of Design Cho presented two small collections before staging a full-fledged runway show in 2001, which featured sleekly modified trenches, corseted bustiers, and silk fishtail skirts. Though his last show ï¿½ set in a fairly empty 80th ï¿½ floor apartment at Trump World Tower ï¿½ experimented with heavy zippers in oversize heart and floral designs, Cho thrives when he sticks to what he does best: slightly tweaked classics.
Wispy waif. Slinky skirts and evening gowns embellished with elaborate ï¿½ if sometimes S&M inspired ï¿½ braiding, ruching, and lace; shirtdresses with thin (but plunging) necklines; skinny pants with overpronounced buttons and piping.
