From Faux-Pas Fighting Cartoons to High-Fashion Tots

This collection of Phillip Lim creations is a comprehensive compilation of the fresh-faced fashion designer's work.

Featuring everything from novel marketing techniques to chic warrior street style garbs, the versatility and youth-concentrated focus of Lim is exemplified. For instance, one of his latest noteworthy creations is not even a piece of clothing. The 'Kill the Night' comic book is a clever approach to promote his new Fall line as it capitalizes off the superhero craze.

The 3.1 Philip Lim brand has only been around five years, but has already garnered a fantastical following in design-conscious metropolises of L.A. New York, Seoul and Tokyo. As an American designer of Chinese ancestry, it seems that his mixed backgrounds have played to his advantage by allowing him to connect fashion from two very different runway worlds.
