Hyeonsu was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. Hyeonsu graduated from Sungshin Women’s University Bachelor of Human Ecology (Clothing), Seoul.
After graduating, she worked as a woman’s office wear designer in Seoul, South Korea. She has developed her skills as a designer and maker upon that practice throughout her work experience. She has expanded her design research and pattern-cutting skills through a Graduate Diploma course at Central Saint Martins to make silhouettes to empower woman’s emotions to take ownership of their own bodies.
During her time at the RCA, she has started to subvert conventional lines of office wear by prioritizing comfortable clothes. She has worked on practicing draping silhouettes as playing with fabric tension and expanded her skills to knitting on dubied, which resulted in creating the aesthetic of releasing the stress of tightening.
Hyeonsu specializes in design research, image-making, pattern-cutting, draping, and textile development.
