J. Min Vedovelli

Born in Madrid in 1987, I grew up in Seoul. Since 2012 I'm based in Paris. My heart does and always will belong to Seoul, tough. I studied at ESMOD Paris and La fabrique Paris, have worked in Paris with such different brands as & Other Stories, Isabel Marant and others.

Currently I’m working on a personal project: A handmade leather goods collection that I would like to launch from Paris soon.
