Tokyo, Japan


Yoon Ahn and Verbal


A Korean-American designer born in Seattle but currently based in Tokyo, Yoon Ahn studied graphic design at the University of Boston, where she met her husband Verbal. Starting her career, Yoon produced album covers for Verbal and other artists, but after a few years, she founded her first jewelry line Antonio Murphy & Astro, which got the attention of a young Kanye West in 2004. Despite no formal training in jewelry-making, Yoon went on to found AMBUSH in 2008 to instant success—no doubt buoyed by her deep connections in fashion and music forged during her early aughts as a graphic and jewelry designer. A finalist for the 2017 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers, Yoon’s now the head of jewelry design for Dior Homme.
