Three years into his career, the designer already boasts 42 stockists worldwide, with an impressive $6 million in sales. His New York Fashion Week debut yesterday was understandably one of the most anticipated shows of the season.
Held on the Brooklyn waterfront, backdropped by the Manhatten skyline, Do set out his agenda for street centric glamour. Understandably, Philo’s influence could be felt – the pair share a love for precise, mannish tailoring – yet Do’s designs carry a sort of sensuality that’s rooted in a youthful, New York energy. Models strode in swollen outerwear, wispy, skeletal frocks, and lightweight shirts unbuttoned down to the belly button. The designer dedicated the collection to his family and his immigrant roots, celebrating his triumphant first show by bringing out his entire team to take a bow. This isn’t a star in the making, he’s already arrived.
