There was a boy who’d liked to draw since he was little. He later studied visual design longing for becoming a commercial film director. And yet it wasn’t until during his military service that he’s determined his career goal. After the countless nights of pondering, he turned to become a fashion designer. As he was discharged from the military, he signed up on the fashion design course at SADI. Being inspired by arts outside of fashion fields, his design was developed under the concept of ‘unfamiliar direction.’
He had a firm belief that if a designer was organizing to present a collection, he or she should know how to showcase and to offer a fantasy to the audience. Armed with his proven confidence, his career was gradually advancing toward success. He finally became recognized for his achievement when he received the accolade of being a finalist for the International Wool Mark Prize. He furthers to expand his ability as he was commissioned to design the uniforms for several leading companies
He gave a strong impression to buyers and press with a height of his perfection and sensitivity. Albeit priced higher than the competitions, he is one of few designers always scores high sales in the market.
He continuously seeks after collaboration opportunities with other brands specialized in accessories, shoes and bags as he is particularly drawn to the totalitarian outfit, the look that gives a uniformity from head-to-toe. This ambitious and astute designer has his undivided loyalty and love to fashion, and clamored “Fashion, I am a precarious fool to know nothing but you!”
We’ve found that one of the greatest ways to have a magnetic and attractive personality is to be genuine and passionate about something. Having observed him for some time, I found him a proper model for such example.
Han Hyunmin is a noteworthy designer. He lives surrounded by garments, pattern papers and scissors while many others are competing with marketing trickeries in the SNS realm, where commercial calculation and PR competitions are dominated.
In his design philosophy, I found irrefutable verity. Nothing’s more attractive for a consumer’s standpoint. MÜNN is not just a clothing brand, whereby clothes are mere seasonal purchases, but is a representation of his uncompromised EGO.
