Hi, my name is Miyoung. I am a designer, a creator, and a mother of 3 daughters
My early career background was in Architecture in Seoul, South Korea
Therefore, I am interested in architectural materials or drawing lines
Whilst I was studying my Masters course in the UK, I experimented with scrap copper to create textures. I sourced my colour palette and images from my copper experiments and applied this onto silk, which were then made into silk scarves and ties. That was my career turning point from Architecture to fashion
I learnt about Upcycling when I collaborated in recycling art and design projects, including local street fashion shows in the uk and in China, with the local community and art students
Recently, I have been inspired by Ellen Macarthur's circular system so I would like to show my journey in becoming a sustainable brand step by step.
