Freedom of expression. Bold gestures. Provocative. Dynamic. Emotion. Energy. A new way of designing.
Hee Kim (Seoul) studied at Parsons the New School for design in New York, and did internships at Carolina Herera, J.Mendel and Halston. Hee also studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art In London and at ArtEZ Fashion Masters in The Netherlands.
Hee Kim integrated the kinetic drawings of dancer and visual artist Heather Hansen with the expressiveness and emotions of choreographer Pina Bausch back into the construction of clothing.Hee started with spontaneous drawings transferring them onto fabric by making incisions.
The result is an abstract, sculptural collection, exploring the boundaries between fashion and art. Sculptural solid shapes forming a contrast and blend with fluid undergarments.
Prints were created from pictures Hee took from remnants of charcoal traces on the floor after the drawing.
Each piece represents the joy and the beauty of movement.
