Corinne Collection, the brainchild of Susan Kim, aims to create pieces that exude individuality and versatility. Crafting locally made, high quality, bold and modern clothing in soft, luxurious fabrics (which are also made in the USA), Corinne injects a sense of timelessness and utility into every piece. Whether a simple, comfortable maxi dress that looks great with a hat and heeled sandals, or her cozy, flowy everyday pants, these are the perfect staples upon which to build any wardrobe.

"I kind of did the backwards version of starting a clothing company. I worked in a showroom for a couple of years and after realizing I knew nothing about clothing production, I decided that the next best thing would be to understand the production side of it. At the age of 26, I bought an existing factory in East Los Angeles where I was a very hands on boss...this is where I learned to sew with industrial machines and learned what it’s like to produce clothing in Los Angeles. When my friends were out partying and having fun, I was taking pattern making classes and sewing classes because I wanted to learn everything I could about the fashion industry."
