Funktional was launched in 2009 by Los Angeles-based designer, Jennifer Park. After graduating with a degree in Economics from University of California, Irvine, she wanted to pursue her passion in apparel by going back to receive her degree in fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A.
Upon graduation in 2000, Jennifer designed for several contemporary brands. With that experience, she was able to hone her skills. During that time, she felt the need to design a line inspired by her fashion sense and her target customer: one who demonstrates modern styling, understands refined details, and luxurious, high-quality fabrics at reasonable prices to meet every woman’s budget.
Gen Art showcased Funktional’s runway debut, October 22nd, during the Fresh Faces in Fashion Show presented by Moroccanoil.
The event was hosted by actress, and co-founder of MyFDB.com, Zoe Saldana.
