Jane Sung is a Korean American designer working within the intersections of fashion and environmentalism.  

Operating on a systems-based approach, her work aims to reconnect individuals with their environment by building material culture and utilizing clothing as a device for storytelling.  

Within her garments, she explores methods of handcrafting through different mediums from metalworking to hand-knitting. Pieces focus on the details of construction and functionality for the wearer while imbuing a sense of romance and fantasy.
