When Donatella Versace announced Eun Jeong and her collection ‘Go by a Secret Path’ as the winner of Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden 2008, Eun Jeong Hong’s (known as EJ) first reaction was to look through the audience for her parents faces who had flown from Korea for the show.
After being presented with the 2008 trophy, designed by Russian jewellery designer Elena Kozhevnikova.
EJ was overcome with emotion and disbelief “I am lost for words – I feel very lucky to have been given this opportunity by Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden. The last few months have been incredible and the support we have received from the Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden team and mentors has been invaluable” she said.
‘I thought the collection ‘Go by a Secret Path’ was the far most outstanding; it had tailoring and the soft frivolous fantasy feel as well; the collection hung together as a story’, Hilary Alexander, The Telegraph.
