Andre Kim loses battle with cancer
Andre Kim (75), one of Korea’s most famous fashion designers and iconic figures, passed away on August 12th at 7PM.
Andre Kim, whose real name is Kim Bong Nam, had been in poor health lately, and was hospitalized late last month for health reasons. He had been receiving treatment in the ICU at the Seoul National University Hospital for colorectral cancer and serious pneumonia before succumbing to his illness.
Kim’s roots in fashion date back to 1962, when he entered the industry in Seoul and held a fashion show in Paris only a few years later. Since then, Kim had held a multitude of fashion shows and served a long list of clients, even designing the official uniforms for Korea for a number of Olympics in the past. With celebrity models including Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, f(x)’s Sulli, SHINee’s Minho, actor Kim Joon and more, Kim was especially known for his elaborate evening and wedding gown collections.
We hope that he rests in peace.
One of his last fashion shows this year: Siwon & Sulli model for Andre Kim
