Fashion Forward host and COUP Boston Creative Director Joseph Gordon Cleveland sits down with Gemma Kahng, the womenswear designer who shot to fame in the 90s with her very first collection of sharply-tailored suiting. Nearly two decades later, Gemma is more a phoenix rising than she is an established veteran: just a few shorts years after her initial success, the business came crashing down around her. She went silent for nearly a decade. She wouldn’t be down forever, though.
Buoyed by her talent, she returned to fashion with a critically-acclaimed collection in Spring 2012 . Gemma reveals how she rose, fell, and came to rise again.
