Lakum, a brand whose mien is born of high-fashion roots and cultural inspiration, is the brainchild of Sathya Balakumar and Heather Green. Sathya, a graduate from Parsons, The New School for Design and Heather, holding a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami, combined their backgrounds in design and sales to create Lakum. Through their mutual dedication to modern couture, they created a brand tailored for brides seeking a set of unique looks for their wedding weekend. The duo established the brand's identity through mixing feminine silhouettes with hard detailing. Infusing heritage with modernity, Lakum's designs are notable for their focus on detail, movement and construction. Exquisite handcrafting techniques contribute to the luxuriousness and ingenuity of each dress. Using only the finest of fabrications, each piece is developed and produced exclusively in Brooklyn. The collection can be experienced at the Lakum Boutique and at specialty retailers worldwide.
