To develop the SS20 collection, J. Kim designer Jenia Kim moved to Uzbekistan for six months to study traditional customs, traditions, and textile techniques. Jenia is focused on the principles of fair trade and sustainability, often incorporating vintage, stock or handmade textile from local markets. Kim discovered the beauty of Uzbekistan is disappearing in front of our eyes: precious items made with the intention of forming a dowry are often being thrown out or replaced with plastics and synthetics.
In response, the SS20 collection recalls the craftsmanship and storytelling of traditional dowry keepsakes. For Jenia Kim, the biggest inspiration for SS20 is the ‘women who worked on the collection…They are powerful and independent. The SS20 collection represents a new form of dowry that you can buy or make for yourself, whether you are going to get married or not.’
