Co-founder and designer of cult jewellery brand AMBUSH, power woman Yoon Anh can be easily described as talented, ambitious and focussed.  AMBUSH encapsulates Yoon’s ideas and allows her to put them into production. The often wild and otherwordly designs are like no other, and with all items made in Japan, the quality of the jewellery is next to none.

Originally from Korea and raised in the US, Yoon and her husband Verbal live and work in Tokyo’s busiest neighbourhood of Shibuya. It requires an energetic rhythm, paired with Yoon;s calm demeanour, together with her humble and honest approach, allowing it all to balance out.

Yoon was featured in Ala Champ Issue 8 (2014)
