One to Watch: Susan Woo

You know the world’s coming to an end when environmentally conscious fashion designers spring out of New York City’s melting pot. But that’s the case here with burgeoning RTW fashionista Susan Woo.

The 26 year-old’s concepts are not only eco-considerate, but based on her new-found fame, they’re also serious business. They’re a structural, body-con set of looks with a neavou-modern edge. When I see them my mind instantly drifts to Holly Fulton’s Art deco womenswear collection, but Woo’s has more of a downtown city girl element. Woo has also been the busy bee having tenured at Louis Vuitton, Derek Lam and Chanel.

Like most of the moment designers, Woo’s clothes are also coveted by the likes of Rihanna and Rachel Bilson. And though the price points are high ($345 – $1,250 USD) with a limited distribution (they’re available at Kaight in NYC and H. Lorenzo in LA), if you keep it tight, a Woo piece will become a classic emblem in modern fashion history.
