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.
