You may not know about this up-and-coming designer, the lovely Joanne Hong who I met at February’s Magic Tradeshow in Las Vegas. But it’s obvious you soon will. She was selected as an up-and-coming designer which allowed her to show her collection at the Magic Emerging Designer Showcase.
Please enjoy my interview with Joanne and let me know what you think of her designs.
What inspired you to pursue fashion?
I didn’t always know that I wanted to be in fashion. When I first started college, I thought it would be fun to be a buyer because I loved shopping. But when I would shop, there would always be something missing or a detail that I wanted to change on the garment. I soon decided that it would be more interested to actually design and create the clothes. When I took my first sewing class, everything clicked and fell into place.
