Wrapping as Fashion
Yom was born and raised in Seoul, Korea. As a graduate at Parsons The New School of Design, he majored in BFA Fashion Design specializing in women's wear. As a designer, he has always aimed to combine fine art and fashion. His design foundation is always composed of using basic elements, therefore his designs provoke a sense of familiarity. Yom believes that an object’s beauty is enhanced when it performs its function, therefore practicality plays an important role within his designs.
In 2021, Yom had a solo exhibition in Seoul where he showcased collages that are made with materials used in clothing making. Through this experience, he was inspired to continue to develop the different possibilities to combine fine art and fashion through exhibition and this has opened a new path for him to explore fashion as an artist.
