Crowd wise, Doo.Ri was definitely a fashion-lovers scene, with more style bloggers and industry insiders in the front row than celebrities and pseudo-celebrities. Which was refreshing. Also, the arrival of everyone's statement furs for the occasion meant the benches were noticeably extra crowded. Susie Bubble, for one, found herself in a shearling sandwich between Man Repeller Leandra Medine and Bryan Boy. But anyway, about the collection...

In regards to the actual runway, the program notes said straight up that the collection was inspired by Butoh, and notes of modern dance were pretty unmistakable. A balletic palette of ice grey, pale pink, and winter ivory; lots of Chung's signature draping; and slick ballerina buns on the models drove the point home. We thought it was gorgeous, some people thought it was too forced, but regardless, here's what we want to talk about: THIS DRESS. The way Doo-Ri layered laser-cut parachute silk over nude brings to mind the illusion lace dresses that have been all over the red carpet recently. Except edgier and more modern and, honestly, way more awesome. Please, please, please someone wear this gown to the Oscars.
