In 3 words...Kilse is Simple - Stylish - Sophisticated.
"I have always had a huge admiration for the style and fashion of the 60s, simply because of the grace, elegance and sophistication that each outfit presented. My own personal style in actuality epitomizes vintage fashion. By using the style of the 60s as a platform for my collection, I was able to create pieces that every young professional lady can feel confident, sophisticated and sexy in."
ATTENTION TO DETAIL..the form fitting silhouette, the surprising open back, the placement of rhinestones, etc, are a few of the intricate details that incorporates in her designs to provide a modern twist while staying true to the vintage style.
Every piece in is either design by our vintage designer or created as a result of a collaboration with foreign designers.The online store came to life 9 months ago, but the creative and planning process my creations started in early 2010.
"In my opinion today's young working ladies are constantly looking for versatile outfits that would portray their gracefulness in a work environment, and yet still being chic for a night out in the town with friends. Factors which I believe I did my best to accomplish in this collection"
HER GOAL & VISION: To provide young working class ladies adaptable, conservative, yet sophisticated outfits that can be transformed from day to night.
Her collection includes handbags, jewelry, shirts, jackets,blazers and dresses.
