3 Names you’ve never heard: What the boys wore to New York fashion week 2017

New York fashion week, known for its obscure brands compared to Paris and Milan, ended just yesterday, and we got to see many interesting figures showcase their unique works.

Here are 3 designers you’ve never heard of that rocked the runway and the streets this fashion week.

1 GENERAL IDEA ( BUMSIK CHOI )

Bumsik Choi, a bold designer of Korean ethnicity, who struggled at first to generate his brand from his background.

He was the son of a street food vendor, and dropped out of school to work in a clothes factory, eventually creating his own brand.

Widely known in Korea and now gaining popularity in the U.S. , his newest collection featured simple designs and shapes.
