Mi Jong Lee

The Korean-American designer has helped champion a new work wardrobe to empower women looking for something beyond the traditional masculine aesthetic. Spring delivers the unadorned elegance she’s become known for, with artful flairs to refined silhouettes including offbeat matching sets for day and bold-hued, glossy silk dresses for night. Lee, a veteran whose credentials include Cornell University and Parsons, The New School for Design, founded her eponymous line in 2014 after a successful presence in the retail world. The collection’s pillars include classic foundations with a distinct influence from the world of fine arts, a refined embrace of color, original custom print design and high ethics and sustainability standards.
