Fashion design and textile design collaboration between Regina J. Yoon & Jadi Haynes was featured in the Academy of Art University 2016 Graduation Fashion Show.

Regina J. Yoon, B.F.A. Fashion Design, was born and raised in Busan, South Korea. During her time at the School of Fashion, Yoon interned at San Francisco-based fashion boutique, Harputs’ Own. Her design philosophy is centered on creating something new, yet timeless, as she aims to infuse a neo-futuristic element into all of her creations. For her collection, Yoon collaborated with B.F.A. Textile Designer Jadi Haynes and designed six looks inspired by the styles and ideologies of ancient and contemporary Korean shamanism. Yoon used cotton, laser cut pleather, and five variations of broderie anglaise to construct a series of exaggerated silhouettes that speak to the past, present, and future. Jadi Haynes, B.F.A. Textile Design, grew up in Elk Grove, California. In 2014, Haynes participated in the annual Discarded to Divine charity auction that took place at the de Young Museum and benefited the St. Vincent De Paul Society. For this collaborative collection with Regina J. Yoon, Florals were Jadi’s main inspiration, but she chose to abstract them to the point of obscurity. The beading for the collection was done Jessica Victoria Wijaya, B.F.A. Fashion Design, who studied Tambour Beading in the School of Fashion.
