The Minju Kim Be Cover Collection Takes Cues from 'The Wizard of Oz'

There might not seem like anything witchy about the Minju Kim Be Cover collection at first glance, but it was inspired by the green witch Elphaba from "Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz" musical. Putting a chic modern spin on the character's style, the looks are comprised of feminine layers that are quite structured in silhouette.

The last line before the young designer graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium, the Minju Kim Be Cover collection gives the green witch "a new exterior to match the way she saw her braveness and kindness, leaving aside the prejudice that followed her," as noted by Trendland. Essentially, the collection imbues the happy ending to a fairy tale, one that may inspire other designers.
