Re Jin Lee

BDB’s Re Jin Lee was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil to South Korean parents. This combination of cultures has had a great influence on her design aesthetics. After receiving a BA in Fashion Design and certificates from Central Saint Martins, London College of Design and Instituto Europeu di Design, Re Jin moved to Los Angeles, CA to pursue her career in fashion design and styling. Through fashion and a move to New York city, Re Jin discovered her passion for home and product design. Like her Brazilian and Korean heritage, fashion has had a major influence in her design aesthetics and also the way she creates and presents her collections.
