Chloe Kim | Fashion Print at Central Saint Martins

Korean fashion designer Chloe Kim has created a unique collection for her Central Saint Martins final degree show, drawing inspiration from forestal scenery and Miss Havisham, Charles Dickens' distressed character in Great Expectations. In the novel, while waiting for the love of her life to return, Miss Havisham stayed at home in her beautiful wedding gown letting the passing of time eat away her joy and pride. With this in mind, Kim collected, hand-dyed and embroidered various materials before distressing lace and silk with a sharp pin to create a collection of wedding gown-inspired pieces. takes Chloe Kim to Epping forest where she creates a wistful tree sculpture using her favourite fabrics as she talks about her background in fine art and her Korean design heritage.
