Minju Kim , The H&M Design Award 2013
Minju is a designer from South Korea who is now in her final masters year studying fashion at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. She won the H&M Design Award 2013 with her BA collection titled “Dear My Friend”, inspired by Japanese Manga cartoonist Junji Ito. The inspiration may be fantastical, but the work that went into the collection was incredibly serious.
Described by Kim as “happy, brave, love”, the collection - aptly titled Dear My Friend - explores the relationship of colour, plays with texture and infuses traditional elements, such as Japanese illustrations on leather.
