EXCLUSIVE: SS15 Merit Award Winner Announced

We are very pleased to announce the Fashion Scout Merit Award Winner for SS15 as Gyo Yuni Kimchoe.

Showcasing his SS15 collection at our Freemasons' Hall during London Fashion Week, Gyo Yuni Kimchoe will present on the same catwalk as our previous Merit Award winners William Tempest, David Koma, Phoebe English and Georgia Hardinge.

The Gyo Yuno Kimchoe label is headed up by designer duo Gyo Kim and his partner Yuni Choe. Originally from Korea, the pair met whilst Gyo Kim was studying at Parsons School of Design. Now a graduate of Central Saint Martins, Gyo Yuni Kimchoe prepare to showcase their debut womenswear collection with Fashion Scout. 

Chosen by the Fashion Scout Selection Panel, which included Hilary Alexander, Robert Cavell-Clarke of Not Just A Label, stylist Rebekah Roy, Fashion Scout Director Martyn Roberts and former Merit Award winner Phoebe English, Gyo Yuni Kimchoe will be sponsored by Fashion Scout to present their catwalk show and exhibition at Fashion Scout London as well as join us in our Paris Showrooms.

“We are so honoured to be selected as the winner," Gyo Kim states. "The Merit Award is the best opportunity for new designers to show their vision and creativity.”
