A personal interest piece on fashion designer Julian Woodhouse of his namesake, WOODHOUSE. The up-and-coming designer's garments are worn regularly by celebrities and he now holds shows at New York Fashion Week. His beginnings in Seoul as a military man were captured in this piece for one of Seoul's expat driven magazines before the likes of Vogue and WWD.

Storytelling is crucial in journalism and exploring the histories of two fashion trends to reflect their similarities created a story. The narrative of these two trends, grunge and streetwear, created a parallel, allowing me to speculate about the future of streetwear while considering the past of grunge.
