Those who aim to become real artists, avant-gardes or visionaries in the fashion world, will sooner or later find themselves in a nerve-racking fight of two principles. What the crowd longs for isn’t usually coherent with the visions of a designer who creates art and whose biggest dream is to unfold his entire creativity. You have to make fashion wearable to attract the crowds, as they always want to wear something flattering. That’s why one question always comes up: “Can fashion be art?”

The Korean-born designer Reijina Pyo became famous when she put the boundaries of fashion and art to proof. She crossed the boundaries in order to create a symbiotic world of both. Today, the world is inspired and enchanted by the works of this talented designer, who worked hard to get to this stage of success.

She completed her masters at the iconic Central St. Martins School of Arts under the tutition of the same professor who had also taught designers like Alexander McQueenJonathan SaundersChristopher KaneMarios Schwab and Peter Jensen. This step of her career was anything but easy, but today it seems like all doors are open to her. She collaborated with the Swedish label Weekday, was awarded the prestigious Han Nefkens Fashion Award and regularly presents her newest collections at the London Fashion Week. While her ready-to-wear fashion impresses with wearable, yet fascinating elegance, she also received the chance to prove her talent in artful works at the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam. Therefore, she created breathtakingly beautiful sculptures of textile and acryl that proved that fashion can be art.
