Top designer Elaine Kim is back from an eight-year absence from the fashion world with an inventive and lovely collection of designs. Kim's design hallmarks are her sculptural flowing creations made from soft fabric draped in clean lines.

Elaine Kim's line comes from cupro cotton, which is created from fiber made from rejected cotton husks or wood pulp. Since cupro is annually renewable, it is eco-friendly.
