ZuZu Kim is a New York-based fashion brand that produces The Couture Bow Tie® for people and pets, which is handmade in New York City. Designs are available for pets, adults, and children. A matching set can be worn together with your beloved pet, creating the most joyful memories and making it an ideal gift.
Christina Kim, a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, began by designing modern and elegant dresses for her own classical piano performances. This evolved into a ready-to-wear line based on her vision of “orchestral dressing”, and distinctly, the bow tie – a universal symbol of music, elegance, and uncompromising style.
ZuZu Kim reinterprets the traditional bow tie, with fresh and innovative designs using unexpected luxury fabrications predominantly of European origin, uniquely tailored construction, and couture sewing techniques. This extraordinary mixture of colors and materials is reminiscent of the variety of cultural influences from the designer’s diplomatic background.
“I am fascinated with the bow tie – its endless possibilities for creativity, and how this singular accessory has evolved over time in its structure, purpose, and meaning. As awareness of the environment and animal welfare has increased, the ZuZu Kim matching bow tie is my attempt to elevate animals to the human level with love and respect.”
