Lynne Hey was born in Durban, South Africa and moved to Canada at a young age with her family. Her childhood was spent exploring creativity through drawing and painting. In her early adolescence, Lynne began using fashion as her primary creative medium.
Lynne became fascinated with styles from alternative subcultures and films from the mid-60s and 70s like Roman Polanski’s Apartment Trilogy, Deep Red, and The Exorcist. Her interest in the horror genre and depicting elements of the macabre have become key reference points to her design aesthetic. Having recently completed her undergraduate collection, she is ready to embark on a career in the fashion industry to develop further as both a professional and designer.
