Gisel Ko, B.F.A. Knitwear Design, was born and raised in Monterrey, N.L. Mexico. In 2014 Ko was a CFDA Scholarship competition nominee. A painting of a girl skiing glad in traditional dress Korean sparked the inspiration for Ko’s graduation collection.
Ko’s collection features hand-knitted items such as a floral bomber jacket and a jacquard sweater, marrying sportswear with the feminine qualities of traditional Korean garments. Ko was selected for an internship with Ryan Roche.
