Launch My Line Bios - Julie Kwon, Designer

After graduating from Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, and spending over ten years in the fashion industry, Julie launched Rhys Dwfen in 2006 to realize her vision of the perfectly modern sweater. The Los Angeles native focuses the line on smart, sophisticated pieces that are adorned with eye-catching details. She carefully tailors each garment with an eye towards creating a sleek silhouette, and svelte, expensive looks that transition deftly from office to night. Since its inception, Rhys Dwfen has garnered praise and editorial coverage in top trade and lifestyle publications. The brand was also awarded one of only eight coveted spots for emerging designers in Gen Art's 10th Anniversary Fresh Faces Fashion Show during LA Fashion Week in 2007. With showrooms in Los Angeles, New York and Canada, Rhys Dwfen is available in better specialty boutiques throughout the United States and abroad.
