For Decode 1.8 designer, Lindsay (Cook) Dini, fashion and design have always been inherent. A natural artist, Lindsay gravitated towards drawing and painting growing up, skills that would land her at the International Academy of Design and Technology majoring in Fashion Design.
After graduation, Lindsay landed a coveted internship at a NYC leading fashion house where the budding designer honed her craft, perfecting her technical skills while also developing her signature design style. Lindsay met Hyun Jung Kim at a successful evening dress company in 2007. The creative synergy between the two designers was undeniable.
When Hung Jung Kim left to open contemporary dress line, Decode 1.8, Lindsay was an obvious choice for first recruit and design collaborator. Their first collection was an instant success.
