Park Youn-soo has been pleasing the fashion world since awarded "Best Designer of the Year" from the Korea Ministry of Knowledge Economy in 2006. His recognition has continued through the years from both Estee-Lauder's Best Fashion Designer Award (2007) and being endowed Chair Professor of Dong-Yang University.
The brand "Big Park", however, is relatively new to the fashion scene. Debuting in 2012, it brings a desire to make high fashion accessible to the every-day wearer. Already Big Park is aiming high to become an international and household brand name. His inspirational and eclectic designs have the brand well on its way to making big fashion names and common buyers stand up and take notice.
This year's spring collection is inspired by American expressionist 'Al Held' and is an intriguing balancing act of opposites, masculinity, femininity, light and dark, bold and cautious.
Big Park's latest collection appears as homage to the questionably fashionable 1980's era. His choice of leather, coupled with the geometrical blocking however, gives it modern ready-to-wear appeal much needed on the runway.
He has taken a broad step away from the classic feminine approach of Korean fashion, choosing instead to showcase a woman's individuality. His color palate for the season is bold and inspiring – a sexy step away from baby-doll pink.
The lack of thigh high hemlines and form hugging designs serves as a reminder that "leaving a little to the imagination" can still be sensual.
