My designer crush of the month is Minju Kim, the winner of the H&M design award 2013 competition. A graduate of the prestigious Antwerp’s Academy of Fine Arts this fresh new talent is bringing something innovative and modern to the fashion world.

Her “Dear, My Friend” collection is undoubtedly my favourite collection of the year. Her playful use of nude pastel colours, puffy sleeves, chunky heels and intricate attention to detail makes it hard for one to pull their eyes away from the pieces. This collection makes me feel like a kid in a candy store.

Minju Kim is definitely one to watch!
