How One Young Designer Went From Fear Factor To Fashion Week
Hyden Yoo is an enterprising fashion industry ingenue who turned his game-show win into a mini fashion empire.
From contestant on Fear Factor, to the toast of the NYC Fashion set, designer Hyden Yoo‘s career has been a wild ride to say the least. Hailing from the lone star state, Yoo initially started out as a Pre-Med major at University of Chicago, later becoming a calculus teacher, tennis and fitness coach, sales associate at Banana Republic, and options trader before fate thrust him into the spot light with his $50,000 win on the gross-out game show par-extraodinaire, Fear Factor. Using the prize money to move to NYC and start a namesake fashion line, Yoo has quickly rocketed to a coveted place among the indie fashion world with his young and freshly tailored looks.
