"Color" is a visual essay of an interview with American stylist Shirley Kurata. Kurata believes that we wield power through our choice of dress; Kim was attracted to Kurata's narrative and chose it as the basis of her animation.
Kim focused on several different characters and wardrobe styles in her animation, choosing elements that effectively spoke to Kurata's narrative. By clearly defining her color palette, she shows how wardrobe can unite, connect, and bring joy to people.
