“Also on display will be the ‘Re:Style Archive Exhibition,’ which is being showcased in collaboration with Re:Style ambassador and model Lauren Wasser, who overcame her physical limitations after double leg amputation caused by toxic shock syndrome. Nicknamed ‘Girl with the Golden Legs,’ Wasser has walked in shows at New York Fashion Week and appeared on a number of campaigns for global fashion brands. With her own story, Wasser will represent the past three years of Re:Style archival collection and show the journey of Re:Style under the theme of diversity and innovation,” Hyundai said.

*‘Re:Style’ debuted in 2019 in New York with Maria Cornejo, who created clothing from waste car seat fabric. In 2020, the project served as a platform for a collaboration with six designers at London store Selfridges. Most recently, in 2021, the company partnered with L’Eclaireur in Paris and Boontheshop in Seoul.
