Doo-Ri Chung leaving the Doo.ri


Doo-Ri Chung is leaving Doo.Ri, her clothing company founded in 2001. While the WWD report was sparse on Chung’s reasons for leaving and where she’s headed next, the tone of the piece and the fact that Chung hasn’t commented on her departure yet suggest that this was not an amicable split. The designer offered no explanation for the exit, and said “wishes Chung well in all her future endeavors.” Chung graduated from Parsons in 1995 and worked for Geoffrey Beene for six years before founding her own company. In 2006, she was the first female designer to win the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, and in the same year, she took home the CFDA’s Swarovski’s Perry Ellis Award for emerging talent in womenswear thanks to her 2005 Spring and Fall collections.
