Having tested the waters with smaller presentations in the past, up-comer Benjamin Cho showed a full-fledged collection
this season, proving that he is one of New York's most
promising young talents.
Cho's impressive tailoring skills were abundantly clear in his deconstructed crepe suits that morphed into flowing capes: A long jacket was sharply cropped to form a minidress, while its sleeves ballooned to enormous proportions and created a draped back. A black bustier corset gave way to a braided dress with tassels cascading over a long fishtail skirt, while a clean, crisp white shirtdress was anchored down with a triple-loop waist tie.
Cho also showed a couple of stunning wide-knit dresses that sensually hugged every curve of the body and looked as if they were held together by the mercy of God.
