Hyein Seo’s thesis collection at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium, where she
was mentored by the designer Walter Van Beirendonck, was inspired by street culture and Dario Argento’s kitschy movie Suspiria. “I love horror heroines with their
fur coats, red lips, and pale skin,” says the 27-year-old Korean, who works in London. Her Vfiles show, which was full of faux-fur pieces printed with ghoulish imagery, was an overnight sensation, and Seo went on to win the Emerging Talent award from the British Fashion Council.
