Doo-Ri Chung Leaving Doo.Ri

Doo-Ri Chung Leaving Her Clothing Label Doo.Ri



Doo-Ri Chung is leaving Doo.Ri, the award-winning clothing company she founded in 2001.

The designer offered no explanation for the exit, and neither did the Tharanco Group, which owns the brand. In a statement Thursday, the Tharanco Group said it "wishes Chung well in all her future endeavors." This exit is reminiscent of Simon Spurr's departure from his eponymous menswear company, which he left without explanation in March.

Chung graduated from Parsons in 1995 and worked for Geoffrey Beene for six years before founding her own company. Chung launched her signature collection in 2003. In 2006, she was a winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and won the CFDA's up-and-coming designer of the year award. Since then she's dressed First Lady Michelle Obama, and this year she designed a capsule collection for Macy's.
