Johnny Kim spent his youth mastering his skills as a pattern and sample maker, chasing the American Dream from factory to factory until gathering enough knowledge in the sample development and full operation manufacturing factories to open his own shop. In 1988 he built Johnny’s Fashion Studio from the ground up and proudly represents the works of clients such as Ann Taylor, Helmut Lang, and Phillip Lim.
Johnny supports emerging designers in the industry through various channels, serving as Vice President for the Korean Apparel Manufacturing Association and as a board member for New York Korean Fashion Festival where fashion students enter a design competition judged by top designers in the industry for an opportunity to launch their first line and gain employment in the industry.
The foundation of any garment begins with the pattern, a critical step towards turning your design into a dream product. Whether chiffon, leather, embroidery or cashmere, our team of highly skilled pattern makers apply their expert eye for garment construction and meticulous detail, ensuring your designs come to fruition.
Johnny’s Fashion Studio is at the forefront of Fashion Technology, utilizing various AutoCad softwares to produce accurate digital patterns such as Optitex and Yuka. The software and printer gives the designer and the studio limitless means of adjustment and improvements, and offers an efficient way to print, duplicate, and share whenever needed.
Johnny’s Fashion Studio’s team structure includes pockets of highly skilled groups: pattern makers, development coordinators, production managers, cutters, sewers and shippers. From initial sketch to the finished sample, our team will guide you through all the technical necessities of building a garment and transforming your design into a complete product.
Johnny’s Fashion Studio provides the space to ensure your designs fit exactly the way you imagined and the resources to fit models. Pattern makers will be present to guide you along the fitting session and provide finishing touches to the product.
Once you’ve accomplished the sample making process, received positive feedback from your Fashion Show and received massive orders from multiple buyers, we will be here to guide you through the production process. We have full capacity to scale, mark & grade, produce and distribute your goods when ready. Our team can provide full consulting on fabric and trimming orders, making available our vast network of resources with local vendors such as Pacific Trimming, Quality and Creative marker.
For those moments when domestic production cannot provide the capacity to meet your volume or budget we can serve as your agent between our various factory partners in China, Vietnam, and Korea. Bulk fabric orders, customs and duties are our specialties.
We provide sample development and production consulting for designers and brands outside of New York.
