The rising designer first came into the spotlight after graduating from the Royal College of Arts in 2016. KANGHYUK is known for his innovative designs made from airbags — he painstakingly dissembles airbags from oxygen tanks, reworking them from their original patterns into looks that are both ethereal and utilitarian.
On the day, KANGHYUK’s work was displayed in London’s MACHINE-A and online at SHOWstudio, while in Los Angeles there was a special installation and launch party at H. LORENZO’s gallery on Sunset Plaza.
In other fashion news, PUMA profits jump 92.2 percent and it’s not hard to see why.
