Creative Director  Hana Cha 



“Sophisticated Minimalism Androgynous Erotic “

Hanacha-studio is an international women’s wear label headquartered in Korea. After graduating in London college of fashion MA course with the title of “Collection of the year in 2012”at V&A, she started dedicating to women’s wear combining odd combinations. Obsessed by the essentiality in a sculpture, in nature, a painting and juxtaposing a contrast and a collage, the philosophy of Hanacha studio is developing and refining design aesthetics that stand by mixing simplicity and complexity with contrast and balance from her research.

Hanacha-studio also seeks to express own conceptual vision and artistic approach to fashion, which is chic, minimal and artful. With high regard to craftsmanship in fabric manipulation, her collections exhibit a sculptural distinction, which can be shown in clearly flowing down dress with anti-body conscious or straight shapes coated dress so on. Her fashion symbolizes a twist of art and fashion into classic and modern style for contemporary unique women. ​
