Not only was this item beautifully made but the shop owner went out of her way to make sure that I got it in time for our event. I can't recommend this company enough and will be making future purchases with them.

KMK helped clothe our entire wedding party, including custom wedding dress, grooms tailed waistcoat, bridesmaids bustle skirts, and groomsmen's waistcoats. They did a great job, and really listned to what we wanted. Everything was beautiful!

I wore this dress for a Boo Bash 5K. It was awesome. Pretty and light and I was able to wear my run shirt and leggings to keep warm but it didn't detract from the outfit. My only complaint was that the straps could have used another notch option as the straps kept falling during my run...but I imagine under normal use wouldn't have been a problem. Love the outfit! Thanks for making my Halloween.

About

Why we love making clothing

KMKDesigns is a mother, daughter independent business. We founded it in 2008 and run it equally together. We now have in - shop employees to helps us create our designs in the studio with us! We hope as we grow to create more local jobs for other artists and creators as well as create more wonderful clothing for wonderful men and women around the world.

The story of how we started is a bit different then most.
While most business are started with a direct intent, we almost fell into ours. It began with a search for a new career change.

Sheridyn had sewn all of her life, and her daughter had always been an artist. Together we attended a convention with a small booth set up where we sold accessories and wore garments we had designed and created. It was mostly just for fun, but we also learned that people loved our creations.

At that same convention other local designers. "Blashpemia's closet, and Scoundrelle's Keep, they told us about a fashion show in the fall and recommended we apply. We decided to go for it. Kaitlyn drew the designs and Sheridyn constructed them, both working together to gather models and figure out the finite details. After that first show, it was like we couldn't stop, Kaitlyn(who previously had never liked fashion or to sew) Kept designing, and began to learn to sew. Sheridyn continued to research other opportunities. We opened an online shop and then soon after found etsy. After lots of hard work and some fabulous work with some generous and photographers and models, our shop began to be something substantial.

Both of us discovered that through making clothes we could help men and women of all shapes, sizes and types to feel more confident and beautiful. The true nature of fashion is to create the feeling beauty and confidence no matter who you are. We wanted to make people feel like princes and princess, Kings and Queens, Fancy Ladies and Gentleman. To have someone walk up to them, they don't even know and say, "hey you look fantastic!"

We love being an independent businesses where we can directly hear about the stories from the people who wear our creations. Even though we have faced challenges and we tend to pour %110 into this, it is so rewarding to see that people we can make happy through our art.

We hope to be in business many years, to make a living while bringing confidence and beauty into people's lives. We appreciate you supporting our handmade business. When you purchase from KMKDesigns you are supporting local artists who craft each item in our shop custom to order.
