Nolcha Fashion Week: New York presented by RUSK, now in its sixth year, has announced its’ official calendar of events for February Fall/Winter 2013 during New York Fashion Week, which will run February 11th – 14th, 2013 and is thrilled to announce the debut of JUNGWON. Dubbed as ‘the only jacket you need in NYC’ the runway show will take place on Wednesday February 13th, 7:30pm, at Pier 59 located at 18th Street and the West Side Highway.

Inspired by New York City’s unpredictable weather, JUNGWON specializes in sophisticated outerwear that allows New Yorkers to brave the rain, snow or wind, while maintaining a sophisticated and stylish look.  The brand philosophy is to make the consumer look chic and classic whilst being a piece of outerwear that you can rely on for many years. The brand ensures that anything can be worn under or with the jacket due to extra details very carefully added so not to spoil the desired look.

Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week, shares “Our platform was created to support and launch independent brands just like this; it has been a pleasure working with the designer and I am intrigued to see the response to the collection especially as it truly is the one jacket that we all need in the city.”

The collection is inspired by a Korean costume called “Dooroomakee”; which was a men’s overcoat during the Chosun Dynasty.  Men and women both began to wear this coat in 1884 with the reformation to wear simple clothes. This has led to JUNGWON’s signature style of high performance, easy care and great looking jackets.

June Sohn, designer, notes, “It has been a dream for me to do a runway show during New York Fashion Week and Nolcha is making this happen at the right time for my brand.   Working with the Nolcha Fashion Week team has allowed me to focus on being creative while they assist with my whole show. I’m very glad that we are working together and see much success for my brand growth.”
