Born in New Jersey (US), Nina grew up in Seoul, South Korea, where she spent most of her life. In 2015 she moved to Switzerland, where she launched her label NINA YUUN while pursuing a Master of Arts in Fashion Design at the Academy of Art and Design FHNW in Basel. Nina graduated in Fine Arts from the Seoul National University and worked for several years in the Korean fashion industry.
The label NINA YUUN explores a new way of design by seeking alternative forms of expressing feminity in fashion. NINA YUUN designs have a strong focus on experimental patterns conveying messages like “relaxed”, “avant-garde”, “unexpected”, “elegant”, and “casual formality”.
