Cheryl Koo's new line will bow in Hollywood this Saturday as a precursor to LA Fashion Week occurring in Mid March. The CM2K line represents the third collection to hit the runway and hang in stores like Beverly Center's Traffic Studio. The maverick designer chose to create her own fashion vehicle outside of the LA Fashion Week parameters with a preview showing at one of LA's hottest clubs/restaurants, supperclub The Restaurant. The former dancer/choreographer still brings energy and fluidity to her work and a splash of performance art in her runway shows that will be evident in this week's media preview and general admission event that includes dinner, drinks, and fashion show.
RAWawards Fashion Designer of the Year winner for 2012, Cheryl Koo fashion debut was auspicious with the line hanging in top, high end boutiques on both costs like Traffic Men and Traffic Studio at Beverly Center Los Angeles. Her designs were also featured on “Germany’s Next Top Model” with Heidi Klum and worn by Nicki Minaj in Alicia Key’s video, This Girl’s on Fire.
For Koo, the only constant for the effervescent and cunning talent is that she’s evolving. Her new line, CM2K, is the realization of apparel creations framed within her perspective of world travels and everyday experiences. From teddy bears to war, the work is beyond avant-garde and an awakening message to her customer. She’s present, taking in every sensory inspiration to deliver a one-of-a-kind design. The third offering titled Back to Black, a fusion of past work from Other Duck, The Other and Cheryl Koo collections, showcases a polarized vision of harmony and conflict. It’s an edgy street style with a cozy couture feel. Classy comfort is derived from mixing different luxury textiles, such as, leather and suede, with accessible pleather, nylon and plastics to compliment the comfort and “wear-ability” of black cotton fleece.
When not producing showcases that meld both her passions of fashion and dance or body surfing in Singapore, she’s working on new collections in a downtown L.A. loft, creating new art and empowering all her followers to have a platform for free expression.
We are invited among exclusive invites to Koo’s CM2K, “Pre-L.A. Fashion Week,” show and could not have been more thrilled. The runway will take place on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at the famous supperclub The Restaurant. The show will include a 3 course dinner by Executive Chef, Guus Wickenhagen, and guests can get a great seat $50 per person. If you want to stop by for just a drink, a great 2 drink special for $28 per person. | For inquires & reservations to attend please contact: [email protected]
