I learned to design from the small town in Maine I grew up in. My mom had been a seamstress to a designer before I was born, and from an early age, I became fascinated with colors, prints, textures and construction of garments and jewelry from virtually nothing.
My parents were business owners themselves. and studied entrepreneurship at the University of New Hampshire where I was a college athlete.
Shortly after school, California began calling my name. I founded Kini Bands™ while living in Los Angeles. As a result of turning the extra materials from my swimwear line, Kinsman Swim. I wore them as colorful bracelets as a reminder to keep focused on the big goals I had, and still do have.
Years later, after having moved to San Diego, I finally realized in a pinch that these bands also made perfect hair ties. And so the collection of hair ties from swim material ensued.
My passion lies in designing swimwear, putting on runway shows at LA Fashion Week, creating new hair accessories, travel, cooking, fashion, creating, running, the beach, and consulting with aspiring business owners to inspire others to bring their ideas to life.
Thanks so much for taking the time to check out Kini Bands and learn more about where they came from.
