In 2001, Doo-Ri Chung started hawking her label, Doo.Ri, at her downtown store, Klee, and she debuted on the runway for fall 2003.
Chung made her name with jersey, but she’s no one-trick-pony. She’s experimenting with fabric, incorporating shocks of color into her famously subdued palette, designing her own accessories, and—as is de rigueur for a hot young designer—foraying into resort.
Her designs are recognized for their architectural details that are consistently clever but not too tricky—and, of course, there’s that perfect drape.
