Andre Kim passes away at 75


On August 12th at 7:00 PM Korea’s iconic Fashion designer, Andre Kim unfortunately passed away due to Colorectal Cancer. Kim was being treated for his cancer as well as a severe pneumonia in ICU at Seoul National University Hospital.  He was 75 years old.

Andre Kim was known for his magnificent wedding dresses and beautiful runway shows. His models  have consisted of our favorite Korean Pop stars like: 2PM‘s Nichkun, 2AM‘s Seulong , Super Junior‘s  Kibum and Siwon, f(x)’s Sulli and SHINee‘s Minho. He began his career in the Korean fashion industry in 1962 and has had shows around the world. Paris, Washington, Barcelona, Sydney, Beijing, Shanghai, and Cambodia are just some of the places where he left his mark.

When I heard the news my jaw just dropped, this is extremely unfortunate. We lost another great mind and soul.

Though I am glad he is able to rest.

Hwaiting!
