NINA YUUN’s avant-garde elegance

Next Call for Projects is now open – More information


With their experimental patterns and clear messages, NINA YUUN’s garments bring exciting avant-garde contrasts and relaxed but unexpected elegance.

The combination of clean, refined cuts and colors of the Korean-Swiss label embodies a continued dialogue with common stereotypes in our society in terms of both content and style. NINA YUUN’s creative goal is to create a wearable but expressive style, redefining fashion for the modern woman.

Behind the eponymous label stands the fashion designer Stephanie Nina Yoon. The label made its debut at the Mode Suisse Edition 14 (September 2018) with its first womenswear collection (Spring/Summer 2019: «Nabilera – Fly Away Like A Butterfly») after Nina’s graduation with a master’s degree in Design from the Academy of Art and Design (FHNW) in spring 2018. She then presented her second collection «The Swirl: Myth of Authority» (Fall/Winter 2019) at the Mode Suisse Edition 15 in February 2019. In addition to regular appearances at Mode Suisse, NINA YUUN has been presented to date in Paris, Shanghai, Beijing, Dunedin (New Zealand), San Francisco and Seoul.
