3.1 is about clothes, that refine instead define. A refinement that's a bit classic in attitude, but imparts a sense of individual style, without looking or feeling forced. Confident, unidentifiable, chic and most of all effortless- Phillip Lim.
In October 2004, after leaving Development, which was the first label Phillip Lim co-founded in California, his friend and now business partner Wen Zhou invited him to New York with an unexpected proposition and that is to start his own, individual label. He described this experience as his ‘sliding doors’ moment. Three days later he flew to New York, and 3.1 Phillip Lim launched soon after in the Fall of 2005.
Phillip Lim debuted his famous collection, 3.1 phillip lim, in the fall of 2005 in New York Fashion Week to instant success, both critically and commercially. In January the following year, Fashion Group International awarded Lim first place in the Women's Designer 'Rising Star' category. Then in July, the Council of Fashion Designer of America and Vogue magazine nominated Lin as a finalist in the prestigious 2006 Fashion Fund Award . 2007 brought the introduction of both menswear and kid by phillip lim, the pint size version of his signature women's collection, as well as an eyewear collection produced by MODO, the European luxury eyewear company. Phillip Lim also received the CFDA Swarovski Award for emerging talent in womenswear, his recognition as a finalist for the Fashion Design Award Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and his nomination as a runner-up for the 2007 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award.Approaching its fifth year, the collection is represented in 45 countries and available at nearly 400 boutiques and department stores worldwide. On the following year, famous hollywood celebrities celebrate the first year Anniversary of 3.1 phillip lim LA store.
