I was so excited when I read on the Mercedes Benz schedule that Parkchoonmoo made it's way into the tent this season. After seeing her last season I was really intrigued in what she will present for the Fall 2012 season. My hopes were fleeting of seeing her work walk down the catwalk in Lincoln Center until I got an invite to the show two days before the show. It was a early morning for the second day. First show on Friday morning but the anticipation of her show (along with the help of a tall vanilla latte from Starbucks) kept me awake. As I read the description and line list, which was full of Alpaca fur, had me drooling. And what she did with the fur and lambskin wool was amazing. The whole show was very avant-garde but still wearable. At heart I am a downtown girl and love deconstructed look. Parkchoonmoo's clothes are for the downtown underground girls but I feel like even the uptown girls could still rock some of her pieces especially the alpaca coat. I also love that she kept her color palette simple with blacks, whites, and beiges. In doing this she really allowed her clothes to do all the talking.

I am really glad that she kept to her asthetics this fall season. I really love up-coming designers and I see her going far!
What do you guys think of Parkchoonmoo's Fall 2012 collection?
