After seeing pictures of accessories designer Joy Gryson and reading that she was born in Korea, I did some on-line searching and lo and behold my suspicions were right. According to Target’s press release:
Born in Korea, Gryson was adopted at the age of three and a half and
has been a New Yorker ever since. After graduating from the Fashion
Institute of Technology, Gryson traveled the world designing and
developing some of the most recognized handbags in the industry.
Joy is married to Peter Gryson, who is also her business partner, and
they have a five-year old daughter named Olivia. Having been adopted,
Joy dedicates much of her time to help raise awareness and funds for
the not-for-profit adoption agency, Family Focus Adoption Services,
where her mother is the Executive Director.
