Christina Ara Cho's educational foundation was laid at the esteemed Parsons School of Design, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. Beginning her illustrious career as a design assistant at the renowned Calvin Klein Collection, Chris spent over 15 years in the fashion industry. During this time, she collaborated with a diverse array of brands, honing her skills and cultivating a rich, multifaceted perspective on design and creativity.

The origin of HENRII—With a desire to pivot towards a more intimate and artisanal approach to creation, Christina founded HENRII (pronounced ohn-rē). HENRII emerges as a sanctuary for the modest craft, placing profound emphasis on the art of hand building. This foundational practice forms the cornerstone of HENRII, where uniquely familiar motifs become a language of their own.

HENRII is a conceptual platform that is rooted in experimentation at the intersection of different practices. It invites the integration of new tools and skills borrowed from various disciplines, fostering an environment where innovation meets tradition. This dynamic blend of elements propels HENRII forward, defining its unique position in the realm of design.
