Koon Lim

When fashion label Koonhor made its debut at New York Fashion Week in 2013, it was immediately touted as one of the top 10 brands to look out for. Designers Koon Lim and Catrine Thé, who met as students at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology in 2003, hope their achievements abroad can serve as inspiration for other Asian designers. To them, the Koonhor woman is an enigma and a work in progress. Each collection is a result of tireless hard work and a belief that the clothes they create should allow the wearer to effortlessly express her individual style.
