In Sophie Hong’s last exhibition — a celebratory feat held at La Piscine Roubaix Museum in Northern France — she described her work as “clothes for the soul.”
The exhibition focused on her materials and the patient process of turning mulberry leaves into richly dyed mud silks.
Sophie Hong creates her collections to bridge the gap between inner being and outer presentation.
Her specialty, typically dark brown, green and black pieces that have been expertly cut and studded with glass and pearl buttons, are joined in her latest collection by a selection of flowing, shibori-dyed silks.
