Kim Phan founded her womenswear brand Yumi Kim in 2004. Phan grew up constantly designing and making clothing, from dressing her Barbie dolls to revamping her mother's old shirts with trimmings and details. Phan launched her first flagship store in New York in 2008. Inspired by vintage silhouettes yet exuding modernity, Yumi Kim clothing collection offers dresses, tops, skirts and jackets adorned with bold colorful prints. Think slinky halter jumpsuits, striped one-shoulder frocks embellished with rosette appliqués and boho-chic blouses in turquoise and red.
