Since childhood she was fascinated with the fabrics, its texture and ability to transform on the clothing form. That is also why she puts a great importance on the quality of the materials that assists her in working on every new collection with the thorough research on shapes, fabrics, colors and prints.
The philosophy of Elise Kim’s fashion design is based on the handicraft accompanied with the research into the new combination of various fabrics and self designed textiles.

The line is inspired by the interesting perception of a dream as the side effect of a reality. The collection’s concept focuses on the fragmentation of reality when people start to fall asleep. The capture of such moment signifies with surreal abstraction and a feeling of blurred awareness. Transferred into different dimension of a dream, we start to see perplexing imagery.
Depicting the concept of these mysterious dream visions, the collection is conveyed by means of leather, wool, mohair, sheepskin and silk combined in an artistic fusion of texture and materials. The prominence of the line is emphasized by the embroidered sequins and original prints designed by Elise Kim.
