Voom was founded by Joy Han and her husband, James Kim. Together, they launched the line in 2002 and began mass production
in 2005. The collection has garnered a lot of media attention and has already been featured in numerous publications including
Elle Italia, Lucky, Glamour, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan and InStyle. In March 2006, Voom debuted the Fall/Winter '06 collection
at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in Culver City.
As the sole designer of Voom, Joy Han is the heart and soul of the company, the original "Voom Girl". As the brilliant and
innovative designer behind the creation of the new style genre "Twisted Vintage".
At the age of 7, she began making near perfect doll sized replicas of the gowns in her mother's couture and bridal salon. Joy's
mother, who was a judge on the panel for the Miss Korea Pageants throughout the 80's and 90's, saw the talent in Joy and later sent
her abroad to study fashion design. Joy received her bachelor's degree in Fashion Design in 1998 at the American Intercontinental
University with a full scholarship.
Joy has dressed the likes of many celebrities in the music and entertainment industry including Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, Paris
Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Miley Cyrus, Eve, Emmy Rossum, Shannon Elizabeth and Jennifer Love Hewitt to name a few.

HOBBY: I personally enjoy shopping
because it allows me to come up with
creative ideas so I can create beautiful
things that, at the same time make me
happy! I love golfing as well. It's a stress
reliever that doesn't take a lot of analogy
- just aim at the ball and hit!
Here are some of Joy's favorite things:
FOOD: I love all types of food but
especially Korean food and anything that
MOVIE/S: I love action movies or
anything that is fun & adventurous.
Needless to say, whatever will keep my
mind off of work is good to watch on the
HERO: That would be my mom, of
course. She is the most talented, hard
working person I've ever met. She
inspires me to push myself even harder
and to continue refining my skills . She's
my foundation and I love her.
