On Jimmy Choo’s annual #Chootravels project in Maldives, we got in touch with Korean-American model, social media personality and all-round fashion It girl, Irene Kim to talk about all things fashion.
FEMALE: Describe your style in three words.
Irene: “Boyish, fun, mix and match!”
F: What do you like most about Jimmy Choo?
I : “When I wear Jimmy Choo I feel sexy and powerful, so I love all the statement heels, especially for special events.”
F: If you could pick one Jimmy Choo item to live in, what would it be?
I : “The Lockett Petite bag is my favourite because it’s the perfect transition from day to night.”
F: Any tips on how to get the perfect shot?
I: “A great background that doesn’t distract from your outfit and good lighting!”
F: What do you like most about your job as a social media influencer?
I : “I love that I get to travel and meet other inspiring women entrepreneurs who are doing great things in their fields.”
F: Who would you regard as your closest friend in the industry?
I : “I have so many women that have inspired me. I’m very close with Jessica Jung – we have a lot of similar interests and passion.”
F: What are some of the projects you’re working on at the moment?
I : “I’m working with my production team @hi_studio_ as their art director for other brands’ projects that don’t involve me as a model. It’s nice to be on the other side.”
F: Any plans to visit Malaysia again anytime soon?
I : “I would love to be back. Malaysian food is one of my favourites!”
F: What’s next for you?
I : “I’ll continue to work with my team on creative projects and inspire people to do what they love.”
