Michelle Kim, no not new to fashion, in the least. Kim was born into the industry. Her father set the stage with his manufacturing business in Long Island City. There Kim absorbed the garment industry language, methodology, and general know-how to fuel her insatiable creativity.
Cementing or should we say ‘sewing’ formal education into the mix at Parsons School of Design, London College of Fashion, consultancy work and the mentorship of Anna Sui galvanized her own inevitable aspirations. Today Michelle Kim, her namesake, reflects inspirations for original designs that are both urban and feminine. She strikes a balance between utility and joy. Expect signature colors, silhouettes and patterns influenced by layers of experience and a focused voice, expressing visceral reactions to everything she loves and feels.
Michelle Kim is designed and produced in New York City and is currently represented by eleven select shops across the United States and internationally, including Sugarcube.
