The innovative Korean brand Human Potential was established in 2008 in Seoul by DO & YK. Yk Kim was born in South Korea and studied design and technology at Parsons, New York where she was heavily influenced and inspired by New York’s multi cultural atmosphere.
Taking these inspirations back to South Korea, her first idea was to set up a cultural space in which artists could exchange ideas, which in turn would influence global culture, in conjunction with creating an innovative fashion brand. Joining forces with Dowon Kim, who shared her vision, Human Potential (HUPOT) the brand and it’s cultural movement was born in 2008.
In 2011 HUPOT signed a licensing agreement with Flux Apparel Inc to manufacture and distribute it’s clothing in the USA, and with vast interest from both consumers and artists from UK, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, France, Denmark, New Zealand, Brazil and Singapore Human Potential is set to expand globally in the coming decade.
