GLITZY GAMS: Doo-Ri Chung didn’t intend for her crystal- and sequin-studded tights to cause a major stir among fashion insiders. The designer created them months before her fall fashion show for a photo shoot, where she felt her clothes called for some playful accoutrements. But once she saw the results, she decided to create enough to complete almost every look for her fall show.
“It was a long and arduous process,” Chung said. “We were here many nights. At the end, when we knew how many looks we had, we had to create extra pairs and it looked crazy in our studio with all of these leg forms everywhere. It’s amazing how many people want to purchase these pieces. We need to tell them they’re not functional — you can’t cross your legs. They’re more for styling tools.”
