Youngwon Kim’s Graduate Collection

Recent London College of Fashion Masters Graduate Youngwon Kim explored post modern aesthetics in a contemporary shoe graduate collection.  Interested in pushing the boundaries of form, the collection was created with the intention of producing new visual, technical and functional forms in new footwear designs.  The heel part of the shoes is customizable, enabling the changing of heels, while a leather layering technique was utilized on the upper shoe.  The designer says, “living in the era of post-postmodernism with a number of much cherished and memorable designs, it is my personal aim to design one that will last through time with its beauty intact.” Off to a great start.
