Christine Kim, the founder of Christine Kim Studio, is an avid knitter and a fashion designer. She embarked on her knitting and fashion career path after being completely burnt out from her stressful life as a consultant. She had been flying to her client site every week, constantly working crazy overtime hours, and operating in a stressful state for years.
She had two major wake-up calls that took her career in a completely new direction. Christine suffering from two bouts of hospitalization from pneumonia - once during intense finals during grad school, and once after finally quitting her consulting job. She knew this life was not sustainable for her, and she began a journey in search of a passion that fueled her and a lifestyle that was also healthy for her.
Along the way, she discovered knitting after walking by a beautiful yarn shop in San Francisco one summer. Never thinking it would ever be part of her career path, she began knitting because the yarns were just so beautiful. After her first scarf, knitting turned into an intense passion. She engaged in it whenever she could, and especially every winter when she needed a new scarf, a hat, a gift for a friend's new baby, or a sweater for her daughter.
Knitting became a meditative way for Christine to engage in creating something beautiful. She then took it a step further and decided to pursue fashion design. She moved from Chicago, where she grew up, to New York, and attended Parsons School of Fashion Design. Eight years later, she still lives in New York City with her husband and her bubbly 6 year old daughter, pursuing her passions, designing a life she loves, and sharing it with all of you!
Christine also runs a baby products business. If you're curious or have a baby, check it out here!
