Young Kim was born in Seoul, Korea but grew up in Long Island, New York. After studying history at Yale University, she went to law school briefly before abandoning it in favour of her passion for the creative arts, particularly the world of fashion and costume. This led her to Paris where she studied fashion design at Studio Berçot and met Malcolm McLaren in 1998. After a stint in the fashion world, including as an editor at V magazine/Visionaire, she started working exclusively with McLaren in 2000 as his producer and creative partner crisscrossing through the worlds of art, fashion, music, film, theatre, and media, until his untimely death in 2010. She represents the estate of Malcolm McLaren and is based between Paris and New York.
Her memoir of her life together with McLaren promises to offer a fascinating insight into life with an artistic genius.
