Yumi Kim

Who says you can’t have vintage and funk at the same time?

Not us, because we’re loving the Yumi Kim dress collection straight from New York! These are cute and hip, but definitely classy enough to wear to a wedding.

The designer, Kim Phan, has been into fashion ever since she can remember. Her brand, named after her little Yorkie, Yumi, combines vintage charm and urban appeal. She opened her first flagship store in New York’s Lower East Side in 2008 and her line is also stocked by premium boutiques and department stores in the States and abroad.

“I wanted the store to be a direct reflection of my personality and style,” says Kim. Her collections are nearly identical to the pieces found in her own closet—vintage dresses, jackets, boots, and accessories. The Yumi Kim style is fun and flirty, with a hip and quirky touch.

Here are our picks from the Yumi Kim dress collection for some wedding inspiration for those young urbanite brides who want to rock that hip and cool look on their big day:

Lanie – One-shoulder dress with double-ruffle detail and front hip pockets. Get a size larger if you have an ample bosom and hips as this runs quite small in the bust and hip area.


Jayne – Wrap dress with a v-neck fitted bodice and asymmetrical pleats.


Ariella – With a deep v-neck, self-covered buttons, and cinched waist, this dress flatters any shape.


Leon – The eye-popping color-block palette, mini tassel belt at the waist, and bias cut give this dress that polished yet chic look.


Left: Nyssa – Silk charmeuse maxi dress with a satin finish interior. With a drawstring waist, front hip and breast pockets, and vintage black buttons.

Right: Tess – Wear the drawstring straps as a halter or go strapless. With an empire waist, gathered elastic back, and bottom ruffles. In peach floral silk charmeuse.


Rizza – One-shoulder silk dress with strap ruffle detail and asymmetrical wrap skirt pleats. Comes with a curve-hugging fitted waist.
