Eun Jeong's 'Go by a Secret Path' Spring Summer 2009

I first discovered Korean-born designer Eun Jeong's (known as EJ) stunning designs for her label ‘Go by a Secret Path’ when perusing Net-a-Porter’s ‘new arrivals’ a few months ago. These beautiful pieces were selling out as soon as they were showing up on the website, and it was not hard to see why.

Winner of the 2008 Fashion Fringe, EJ’s stunning 12-piece all-white debut collection, inspired by the classic film 'Dangerous Liaisons', showcased beautiful white silk Grecian dresses, crisp white corsage embellished vests and disarrayed broderie anglaise & lace that were expertly draped over the models’ bodies, cascading the figure.


I know these are very large, but I just had to show you some close-up of the intricate details:

  3. Hi Evie! So nice to hear from you again! Glad to hear you had such a lovely time away! And SO exciting about your 'preparations'! :)

    Oh, Eun Jeong is a 'she', hehe, and I totally agree with you, she sure is an amazing 'clothes-artist'! :)

  5. I discovered him a while ago, browsing pages on net a porter, and it was love at first sight. This collection is beyond gorgeous, and that last dress is my favourite.

    Re: It doesn't matter that he isn't famous or anything of the sort, but your grandfather is still the coolest! haha

  9. OMG.... I LOVE EUN JEONG. I did a post in February 09 when her items popped out at Net a Porter first - they've been sold within a couple of hours....
    Her designs are taking you on a trip through a daydream about fashion in heaven - that's exactly HOW angels must be dressed like!!!! :-D
    Thanks for doing such an amazing posting about Eun Jeong!!
    Hope you've spend a great weekend!

  13. I know!!!! I was so happy when she won. And was excited about possibly seeing her Fall show during LFW, but I missed it by like a day (BOO). When I saw the photos of fall, they were not as spectacular as her Spring debut. She's very talented and humble. And starting up her line. I'm hoping she continues to design. She has a wonderful point of view! Those CSM grads are crazy innovative, IMHO.

  19. Thanks for the info about your grandfather's movie. So cool.

    What a great collection! Where can I get it?

  20. Thumbelina - Net A Porter (founder Natalie Massenet was one of the judges on the Fashion Fringe panel) had 5 or 6 pieces of this collection, some of which sold within hours of appearing online, and the rest is now well & truly sold out. I don't know where else stocks EJ as yet (except for NAP & Selfridges in London)...I know each piece was retailing around GBP 1500, or thereabouts...

    HTH! :)
