Soyon An is a two time Emmy Award winning costume designer and stylist who took home her Emmy’s for her fabulous costume designs on “So You Think You Can Dance,” in the category of Outstanding Costumes for a Variety/Music Program or Special.
One of the reasons she is receiving so much attention is for her “speed.” Soyon An achieved so much at the young age of 28. “TV’s favorite,” is a title that follows her name every time. She is the creative fashion genius of “American Idol,” and “So You Think You Can Dance.” She has the fashion talent and charisma to quickly analyze each contestant’s personality and style.
“It is very rewarding. It’s a lot of conversations and while you’re trying on stuff you explain to them why certain styles look good on them or why we’re going in this direction. Whether on Dance or Idol, I walk them through why we’re going this direction and choosing this outfit instead of the other one. “
Soyon An is also a celebrity stylist. She has styled stars such as Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Avril Lavigne, Pink and Kate Bosworth. She is currently styling Carrie Underwood on her tour. She is a fashion editor and consultant for various fashion magazines.
Her belief is simple. She creates trend-setters, not trend-followers. Being a designer is a great plus for her as a stylist, and the young fashion genius has great plans. She is preparing to launch her own line. She wishes to have her own main stream fashion line, and run a custom design boutique.
