Kathy is an experienced fashion product designer, developer and retailer. She has created product for Disney, American Greetings, Bath & Body Works, Victoria’s Secret, Illuminations and most recently for the Kardashians. She began creating the boot cuffs and scarves as the emerging trends pointed to this style of product, using her skills in needlework and distinctive pattern development to create/crochet each pair herself as a unique work of art.
Her family immigrated to the US four generations ago, when her great grandparents came here as children, fleeing the unrest in Bohemia (soon after to become the Czech Republic). The Bohemian language was spoken in her household as she grew up and the tradition of artisan work was to be passed on. It was her great grandmother and grandmother who taught her the art of needlework.
