QnA in Seoul : Xin Jung Ah

Q&A in Seoul

xin jung ah Collage

Again a woman designer, but this time she’s from Korea. She’s Xin Jung Ah, mastermind behind Hexynghexyng. As the other guest, she chose the place where we met: Lay Bricks Cafe (this is how I found the place!). I suggested her to write it in Korean, if she wanted to and felt more comfortable, but Jung Ah-ssi completed in a very good English. From Ulsan she came to Seoul to study and then started her own brand.

At this moment she’s working for the next collection, fighting!
