Kim Wormgoor (1979), owner and designer of Kymare, graduated in 2002 from the Academy ARTEZ in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Her career started with her first swimwear collection at the Mittelmoda Fashion Awards in Grado, Italy. With this collection she won in 2003 the first prize in the category 'Swimwear Design'.

After this success Hunkemöller gave her in 2004 the opportunity to design her own swimwear collection for the international body fashion chain. In July 2005 Kim was ready to take the next step and started her own label: Kymare. The label name is a combination of her own name Kim and the Italian translation for sea: mare. Her passion for water and windsurfing always takes an important place in her designs. The swimwear as well as the womenís wear are made for free minded women in a refined, edgy elegance style.

Ever since the launch of the label, collections have been received worldwide with great interest and have been published in important fashion magazines such as the American Vogue. Over the last five years Kymare has expanded and keeps growing. For the 2011 summer season the first Kymare clothing line was launched, besides the already successful swimwear collection. The designs are available in respected stores in seven countries across Europe, Asia and North America and online at
