Since launching the line in fall of 2019, Kardashian has been dedicated to creating – and advertising – SKIMS’ seemingly endless collections, ranging from mesh to boucle yarn.

Back in April, it was revealed that SKIMS had managed to garner a value of $1.6billion despite the obstacles brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘The company has raised $154 million in new funding, which Ms. Kardashian West said had lifted its valuation to $1.6 billion,’ reported the New York Times, adding that ‘It is a heady amount for a not-quite two-year-old clothing brand, even one led by someone with [Kim’s] star power.’
