Peter Som

Som’s first women’s wear collection launched in 1999. Since then,
his clean, easy yet feminine clothes have been winning praise

American Moment,” Cathy Horyn of the New York Times identified Peter as
“one of the best young designers working today.”
The fashion industry has repeatedly taken notice of Peter Som’s talents
with nods from the CFDA in ’97 as a rising young talent recipient of
the Scholarship Competition, the Parsons Gold Thimble awards, and two
CFDA nominations for Emerging Talent.
