Kathryn Kmiecik has always had an interest in creating garments to fit one’s personal taste. She is receiving her Bachelor of Arts in fashion design because she has always had an interest in art and wants to create garments that average people may wear as well as adaptive garments for those who have a hard time finding stylish clothes that work with their individual needs and conditions.

Kathryn’s design philosophy is to take inspiration from historical garments and create new, vintage-inspired pieces. She gravitates toward earth-tones and the color and life she finds in nature. Her interpretations provide a base for mixing and matching with what her customer already has in their closet.  She appreciates the designs of the past but believes there are many aspects to improve upon. She wants to create garments for the modern-day woman that are both stylish and comfortable, appropriate for a night out or a casual get-together with friends.
