Susan Woo is an American fashion designer, born to Korean-immigrant parents in Manhattan.
When she was 4 years old, her uncle brought her aChristian Dior pink velour dress from Paris to wear for her nursery school portrait. But the story doesn't stop there. Woo threw a tantrum when her mother forced her to wear the frock, resulting in a photo that captured her teary-eyed and runny-nosed, absolutely shattered at being told to wear something "so hideous," she says.
Susan's brand philosophy epitomizes modern fashion and is a blend of high design with both environmental and social consciousness.
Woo launched her collection in fall of 2009 after studying at Cornell University and developing a background with companies such as Louis Vuitton, Derek Lam, and Chanel. Read her mission statement and vision, below.
