Kim has been with Oscar de la Renta for over 20 years and started Monse in 2015 with her creative partner, Fernando Garcia, who also happens to be the co-creative director of Oscar de la Renta.

    Aside from designing and leading two fashion brands, most recently, Kim made her debut in the home category. Announced on June 6, Kim collaborated with home goods company Crate and Barrel on a collection that includes over 110 pieces across kitchen, decor and entertaining essentials.

    "Designing clothes, cooking and what I did for Crate and Barrel designing home goods, it's all very similar. You have an idea and you have to think about the atmosphere at the end and how it's gonna come together," Kim said on the latest episode of the Glossy Podcast. "You buy raw materials, you collect images and you have a team that helps you execute it. [For Crate and Barrel], we did a photoshoot when everything was finished, and for fashion, it's a runway or a photo shoot. The content creating at the end is very similar."

    On this week’s episode of the Glossy Podcast, Kim discusses how she navigates designing for two major fashion brands and what's next for her in the creative space.
