Hannah Kong unveils Collection

On the 24th of May 2016, I witnessed Hannah Kong's debut collection at Aruga by Rockwell.  Her collection features a 15-piece broderie d'art occasion wear, with meticulous stitching and embroidery known as the Lunéville or Tambour technique (a couture embellishment technique).  Hannah studied the techniques of embroidery art at the prestigious Ecole Lesage Paris, which is inextricably linked to the greatest names in fashion such as Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Louis Vuitton, Valentino Garavani, Christian Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel under Karl Lagerfeld.

Hannah created such romantic and timeless pieces for her debut collection and the dresses were aptly named after her teachers, roommate, clients and favorite French names.  "My show is very French, the feel of an afternoon stroll in the gardens of Versailles", she says. "It's an ode to my stay in Paris."
