Hyun Mi Nielsen:
The Designer Making Couture Cool Again
The South Korean adoptee was raised in Denmark and has previously worked with Ricardo Tisci at Givenchy and as the right hand of Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.
Starting her own brand under a year ago, Nielsen combined her experience working with the best in the business to bring her own vision to Paris’ Couture Week.
Hyun Mi is creating dresses and separates that stylish women want to wear – flared suiting, patent coats and embellished statement pieces.
The new talent is forging her own niche by merging contemporary silhouettes with hand crafted techniques.
