Born in Taiwan; based in Finland. Trained as a textile and fashion designer. Inspired by the dynamic interaction between colors, materials, and spaces.

Yun-Jung seeks to bring together the art of natural dyeing and her training in fashion and textile design. For her project, she created garments and accessories to showcase the potential of her onion-dyed textile, designed specifically for fashion usage. Her journey began with pattern developing and material selection for each design, followed by meticulous experimentation with different temperature and dye combinations. Her process sometimes brought about unexpected results, as woven structures and surface colors can change after dyeing. These changes were documented to ultimately achieve the designer’s desired effects. The pieces in this mini fashion collection were created based on the unique character of each textile and were completed by wrapping textiles freely on mannequins or human bodies. The textiles guided Yun-Jung and allowed the design to grow organically.
