NY Fashion Week Fall 2010 profile: Hyo Sun ‘Nicky’ An


Name: Hyo Sun ‘Nicky’ An

Major: MFA Fashion Design

Birthplace: Busan, South Korea

Materials: wool, wool jersey, rayon jersey

Inspiration: Nicky set out to design clothes with fluid amorphous boundaries. She looked at non-orientable surfaces such as the Möbius strip (a ring with an indistinguishing interior and exterior) and the Klein bottle (mathematician Felix Klein’s vessel that cannot be filled) to create her collection of encircling strips.
