While he valued his favored climate, Lee said that having the “Falsehood Sang-bong’s child” label chasing after him has been a great deal of tension.
Without the experience of accomplishing things all alone, remembering exhibiting assortments for London, I wouldn’t have the option to prepare myself for working here,” he said.
Due to individuals’ biases, Lee never pondered turning into a style originator as a kid. Growing up with in the middle of working guardians, he needed to have a normal way of life with a nine-to-six work. Lee even studied history schooling, aim on turning into an educator.
Lee started the second part of his style profession with his presentation as a womenswear fashioner at the “Who’s Next Paris 2012.” Impacted by his dad, who is an eminent couturier, he yearned to send off a womenswear brand and sent off LIE in 2012.

Its trademark “Flawed but in a good way” is much of the time utilized in his assortments, which looks to communicate the variety and uniqueness of people.
“There is no particular dream for Untruth. We are somewhat roused by the soul of ladies who had the guts to take up difficulties,” he said.

This was Untruth’s subsequent catwalk show in Paris, following a grandstand of the 2019 spring-summer assortment. It likewise denoted Untruth’s most memorable in-person runway show since the spread of Coronavirus.
“The idea of the 2022 fall-winter assortment began with an intriguing thought – – a ski excursion to the Alps with your pet plants. Since the idea of being ‘companions’ with pet creatures and pet plants has as of late become significant, the assortment recommended an ecstatic excursion in magnificent nature, partaking in an apres-ski with most loved pet plants far away from smothering city life,” the planner said.
“It are critical to “Appreciate and monitoring the climate. So the assortment was planned utilizing reused materials,” he said.

He reviewed how Untruth Sangbong’s nation of beginning was once set apart as North Korea at an abroad show corridor.
“Unfamiliar purchasers couldn’t differentiate between the two Koreas in those days. They thought Korea was a country on the outskirts of style. In any case, presently they invite Korean brands, pose numerous inquiries about the item quality and believe us.”
auty or cons Lee painted a blushing viewpoint for Korea’s style industry. It will probably check an achievement internationally, because of the ubiquity of K-pop, Korean motion pictures and Korean food. Because of dynamic advancements by capable Korean style planners, Korea is a major point in the worldwide design industry, he said.
More sharp consideration from neighborhood merchants and customers, combined with style marks’ dynamic advancements can additionally improve the place of Korea’s design all around the world, Lee said. Deals of Korean design items in the nation are undeniably less contrasted with other Korean substance, in spite of its high potential, Lee called attention to.
Design is at this point not an item, yet a culture, as per Lee. One of the brand development techniques for Untruth is sending off joint effort items in association with organizations in different fields, including top of the line alcohol creators, lodgings, galleries and automakers.
While his objective as a style planner is to make new qualities by blending and matching components that everybody can appreciate and showing them through Falsehood items, Lee likes to make a dearest brand instead of turning into a No. 1 architect. The aggressive architect means to advance the possibility that “Untruth Sang-bong is to LIE as Prada is to Miu.”
