Co-founder of high-end footwear line Jen + Kim
FIDM Footwear Design Graduate Kim Dingman was recently profiled in Footwear News which featured the launch of Jen + Kim's customizable bridal footwear collection.
“I went to school in New York at a state school first and then to F.I.T. and received my Bachelor's in Merchandising and Management. While I was in school, I was fortunate enough to intern at both Harper's BAZAAR and then Ralph Lauren. What I learned from both of these experiences was that I wanted to be more creatively involved in whatever it was that I did.
At that exact same time, Jen [my business partner] had an idea for a shoe line. We started working together and I knew that I needed more experience. That's when I found FIDM. The Footwear Design Program is one of a kind. No other American college offers the same intensive curriculum as FIDM.”
