Fashion Week Diaries: Cho Cheng Shows Pastel, Can't Draw A Crowd

Cho Cheng, a virtually unknown designer in the RTW market in the US, was named one of China's top five designers by Modern Weekly, a national Chinese luxury and lifestyle magazine, recently received his BFA from Parsons, and is one of the youngest coutouriers of his time. He got his start by taking over his grandmother's couture house upon her death. I think it's time the US started taking notice of this young man! He is pictured center below.

Faithful devotees include Carmen del’Orifice (actress and model, Cheng's muse, and last model in this season's show (pictured left), and several socialites who don his designs at various fundraisers. 

The Cheng show on Wednesday, however, was a testament to his RTW fan base – small. Being at 9am midweek doesn't help either. The turn out was so poor I sat in a not-full front row. Yikes.

Cheng used pastel sorbet-like hues on rich lightweight silk brocade to create impeccably tailored suit separates. The jackets were beautiful and something I can definitely see someone my mother's age wearing to work. His black and white ensembles had a more young feel to them and I wonder if it was simply because pastel suits don't scream 'young'.

NYC TV personality Kelly Choi was the only person I recognized of any social-standing at the show.

Decked out in knee-high suede boots and a cute black and white patterned shirt-dress with front yoke and black corset tie belt, Choi looked stunning as always. You might recognize her from PBS's Secrets of New York, nyctv's Eat Out New York, or the Food Network's Iron Chef America

Get Choi's look for cheap:

Black suede reasonably-heighted boots are $88 (honestly – where can you find knee-high boots for under $300 these days?), black and white check shirt dress is $193, and wide double buckle belt is just $33.
