This London Fashion Week, old favourites including Emilia Wickstead, Preen and Mary Katrantzou had Instagram alight with love and appreciation. However, it was Rejina Pyo, a well-known designer on the fashion circuit, but certainly not yet a household name, that seemed to steal the limelight as the spring/summer 2018 London collections came to a close.
Here we round up everything you need to know about the name on everyone’s lips.
1. She is a Central Saint Martin’s graduate from Korea
Pyo hails from Seoul and completed her MA in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in 2011. Her graduate show was widely praised by critics and she was quickly snapped up to be Roksanda Ilincic’s first assistant, where she worked for three years before setting up her namesake label in 2014.
