The event celebrated Lee’s new namesake brand, Mi Jong Lee; a designer ready-to-wear collection made in New York. Guests enjoyed sparkling rose and customized Laduree macarons while previewing the Prefall and Fall 2016 collections, which is inspired by the architectural work of Zaha Hadid and features original art-inspired prints and luxurious fabrications.

 

MI JONG LEE: “I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the amazing support for the launch of my collection on Thursday evening. I am constantly inspired by artists from diverse cultural backgrounds.Calligraphy delineates space by the graceful arc of linear paths, creating bold boundaries of strength. I have admired this dynamic in the artistry of world renowned architect Zaha Hadid, whose work has helped to inspire my Fall 2016 collection.”
