Background: Hi my name is Jessie Kim and I am from Los Angeles, CA. I have always been interested in womenswear and am very excited to further expand my knowledge in the fashion world. I am drawn to color, details, and sparkles!

Thoughts on the Collaboration: Collaborating with professional dancers was an amazing opportunity to learn how to make functional, purposeful clothes. It was challenging to take into consideration so many aspects, such as the movement, colors and the iconicity of the costumes. It was definitely a dynamic experience where designers were exposed to a realm outside of just fashion and introduced to another art form, ballet!

Jessie Kim is a junior at RISD in the Cut & Sew Costume Studio.
