Rejina Pyo is an award winning Korean born fashion designer based in London. Having completed her Central St. Martin’s MA in 2011, Rejina went on to win the prestigious Han Nefkens Fashion award, before establishing her internationally stocked eponymous label in 2013. Rejina Pyo is known for its astute cutting, exploration of geometric shapes and fusing relaxed proportions with fresh and quirky colour combinations, evoking a paired back confidence.
In 2014 she showed her sculptural pieces in the ‘Future of Fashion is Now’ exhibition alongside Hussein Chalayan, Victor&Rolf and Iris Van Herpen at the Museum Boijmans in the Netherlands. Previously, her sculptural works were also a part of the ‘Monsters in Fashion’ exhibition, which was in Athens in 2012 before moving to Paris’s Gallery La Gaite Lyryque in early 2013. Rejina’s work was also exhibited alongside Alexander McQueen and Martin Margiela at the ‘A Queen Within’ exhibition, curated by Sofia Hedman.
Rejina Pyo and her designs have been featured in Vogue, Elle, Independent, New York Times, AnOther, The Gentlewoman, Dazed and Confused, and Style.com, amongst others. Pyo is also a tutor at Central Saint Martins and acts as a consultant womenswear designer for other fashion houses in Europe.
She was supported on our New Fashion Venture programme since June 2014.
