Born and raised in Seoul, Yeon does not recall a time when she was not creating. Inspired by her mother, who was an avid sewer, Yeon became highly skilled on the sewing machine by age 12 and began making clothes using her mother’s leftover fabrics. In 2014, Yeon launched her namesake label and spent the next two years researching and developing exquisite fabrics while apprenticing at some of the world’s best ateliers in France. Today, Yeon designs with a small team in her Tribeca atelier.
