About Creative Director, Julie Kim
Posted on May 01 2016
Born out of a love for simplicity and elegance, Arium Collection is inspired by Designer and Creative Director Julie Kim’s strong emotional connection with her surroundings. With collections named after natural phenomenon, nature and the physical world, her designs evoke a familiar yet global sense of belonging.
Behind the brand lies Julie’s heartfelt and rich philosophy on beauty and identity. Drawing from her Korean heritage, her designs weave together features of handcrafted adornment balanced with elements of modernity from her time living in the world’s cosmopolitan capitals such as London, New York, Rome, Hong Kong and Madrid.
15 years as a fashion designer, she shifted to jewelry design by opportunity to expand her design concept. She attuned to jewelry and accessory design while working as a head designer for a prestigious Spanish luxury brand, CH Carolina Herrera. This permanently ignited her passion for jewelry design which has grown stronger ever since.
Currently she is living in Helsinki, Finland and enjoying her serene life surrounded by nature.
