Describe the woman you design for?
A woman who's fun, sexy, care free and loves the arts.
Is there a single dominating emotion you would like women to have while wearing your clothes? Why?
Unique, because the clothing is one of a kind.
What is the one attribute of KREL that you know, but most people haven't realized yet?
Its all about the textiles.
Which accessories are most complimentary to KREL?
We love making shrugs its the perfect accessory for any weather and so easy to carry. Like a rolled up socks but for your arms. Perfect for a/c!
Where would you like to take KREL next season?
What mark would you like to leave on the fashion industry?
Knits are not necessarily made by your grandmother.
The KREL line is a good example of the trend in fashion toward imperfect and worn looking clothes. What is the next evolution of this trend?
This line represents our artistic side, which evolves with color and fibers. The technology of the fibers will automatically help the evolution of our work and the trend. So we'll hopefully be making fire retardent knits or something of that nature.
