The driving force behind this collection is Wonho’s personal and passionate interest in the process of human recovery, both physical and psychological. Taking prosthetic aids as a visual stimulus, the collection breathes the intense spirit of the human will. Conveying a sensitive yet empowering message, DESPERATION IS EMPOWERMENT contrasts life with death, soft with rough, cold with warm, and physical limitations with physical extensions. Wonho’s ingenuity as a designer is revealed through intricate and sophisticated details, while his boldness can be felt in the collections tone and energy.
