about me

Hi! I am a Fashion designer, artist and instructor.

I have been worked in fashion industry in Seoul and New York since 2004.

selling more designs with big quantity was my priority goal.

As time goes by, and with marriage and having babies,

I started to rethink about why I do fashion and how I make it meaningful.

That's how I met the concept of "Zero waste fashion"(ZW).

The responsibility of designers for earth that Victor Papanek insisted was

a great inspiration for me to start ZW Fashion.

 

 I mainly used Paper-folding methods and techniques to realize ZW fashions.

It's predictable and unpredictable at the sametime.

 it's trasformable and dimetional,spacious,artistic on human body. 

And I have plans to use more various methods 

To me, fashion is a fun tool of reading the world and communicating with people.

This website contains of my creative practices across fashion and art, especially Zero waste fashion for sustainability.
