Kristin Parker made her way into the fashion world at the early age of eight years old, learning the sewing basics on a vintage Singer, trained by her mom while gaining artistic perspective and inspiration from her dad. Her passion for fashion quickly progressed as her adoration for creating a wearable masterpiece from start-to-finish emerged. Thus, eager to advance her knowledge of the industry, she combined a four year Fashion Design & Textiles degree with her self-taught skills in design, illustration, pattern-making, CAD, sewing, and garment construction to achieve the level of expertise she currently maintains.
From the casual coast of North Carolina to the fashion-savvy streets of Los Angeles, Kristin has acquired a significant amount of inspiration from vintage gems, cultural beauty, eye-catching art and enticing colors. Such stimulation greatly influences her whimsically eclectic yet modernly unique style.
While her skills are far from limited, Kristin's design focus is in young women's contemporary with advanced skills in couture techniques and hand-sewn embellishments. Her personal drive along with her attention to detail and fit allow her to cross stylistic boundaries and masterfully create a flawless end result.
