The Perfect Clothing for Work and Beyond
Kristen started Silk and Cyanide after dreaming about it since her high school days. She graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans and afterward moved to New York City to start working in buying at Macys.com. After spending a few years in the corporate retail world learning and gaining experience, she couldn’t stop thinking of running a business of her own. Finally worn down by the corporate world, she left over two years ago and hasn't looked back!
She has been sewing, designing and collecting vintage pieces from an early age and spent the first few months on her own trying to figure out what she could bring to the fashion industry. She decided to combine her passion of vintage clothing along with one the frustrations she had felt in the corporate world: the lack of stylish clothing that worked well at both the office and at dinner or drinks afterward.
Owner, Maker, Designer
Kristen is the designer of S&C. She's been collecting vintage for years & has built a design aesthetic inspired by it. She brings knowledge & passion of garment construction, design & sales through over 10 years within the retail & fashion industry.
