Rejina Pyo is an award winning Korean-born fashion designer based in London. She completed her MA degree at Central Saint Martins in 2011, where she created a standout collection for her London Fashion Week show. Pyo’s use of wooden sculptures, together with fluid dresses, created a beautifully idiosyncratic mood that captured the attention of the fashion press. Following her show Rejina was chosen by the H&M owned retail store Weekday to create a range of designs based on her MA collection that were subsequently sold in over 30 of their stores across Europe.

Rejina has gained significant experience working for the past 2 years for various luxury designers in London. During this time she was also won the prestigious Han Nefkens Fashion Award (judged by Penny Martin – Chief Editor at Gentlewoman, Viktor & Rolf, Han Nefkens and Jose Teunissen). As part of this award Rejina was commissioned to create an installation for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Entitled ‘Structural Mode’ this statement collection worked on the boundary between wearable garments and art works, fusing together elements of fashion and sculpture. Her work has featured in Vogue, Elle, Independent, New York Times, AnOther, The Gentlewoman, Dazed and Confused, and Style.com to name a few.
