KIM MESCHES is an emerging clothing company featuring the singular style of Kim Mesches. Kim is a Brooklyn-based fashion designer, artist and stylist. His graphic chic style incorporates unique fabric treatments, distinctive silhouettes and sleek design. Kim graduated from FIT in fashion design.
Kim began designing at an early age, and the KIM MESCHES dynamic style grew out of his work customizing sneakers in high school. Kim took an old pair of sneakers, painted them with graffiti-inspired graphics and wore them around town. People loved them, and ordered customized pairs of their own. To date, Kim has designed over 50 pairs of shoes, including customized sneakers for Nike and for celebrities such as Lupe Fiasco, Lamar Odom of the LA Lakers, Mos Def, and many others. He expanded to graphic T-shirts as well as a line of womenswear called KIMBO, which was sold e-commerce.
In 2008, Kim became Associate Designer for a brand, designing high-end eveningwear and bridal gowns. He grew to the position of Head Designer in 2011. Upon leaving that company, KM Collective, LLC was formed. The brand used that name for two seasons but is now rebranded completely as KIM MESCHES.
Kim currently works on the KIM MESCHES brand. He also is a freelance stylist and fashion brand consultant.
