NYFW Bluetamburin

Scene: Spring/Summer 2022, Korean designer Bomin Kim’s fashion brand, Bluetamburin, was presented as part of Global Fashion Collective, founder Jamal Abdourahman, at New York Fashion Week. Bomin wanted to express Korean and Western moods at the same time and to share the importance of self-expression and freedom in this collection.
The collection included several nods to Kim’s heritage, like the black hat mirroring the traditional gat. Garments came in shades of blue and gray and were heavily accessorized. Blazers were accented by shimmering embellished sleeves, and paired with teal feather and floral arrangements. The looks were very structured, from the tailored men’s formalwear to their dramatic dresses. This collection is so uniquely Bluetamburin. 
Talent for the show: Hair by lead hairstylist Odete DaSilva, Artistex Salon Westport, Ct, and team, Makeup by lead makeup artist Monique Rinard, Aofm Makeup and team, Fashion publicist Emily Bungert founder, EB Consults, and 608 Fifth Avenue was the venue.
