Young Kim embarked on her undergraduate studies in the fashion design program at Parsons The New School for Design and completed her bachelor’s degree in fine arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, majoring in fashion design. She is now the interim NYC Studio director and a non-tenure track lecturer at Kent State University.

The NYC Studio program offers students the chance to spend a semester in New York City studying in one of the world’s largest fashion capitals. This program also gives students the opportunity to network with designers and garner real-world experience. The program also offers students exposure to different styles and trends.

“Ms. Kim is a very proactive NTT faculty member in the Fashion School who has been with KSU at the NYC Studio since January of 2011,” said J.R. Campbell, professor and director for the Kent State Fashion School. “She is very creative and resourceful, and I was very confident in asking her to fill the interim role while we determined the next best steps following Emily Aldredge’s departure from the NYC Studio director position in May.”
