Kjaer inspiration comes from her clients, to see the joy in their faces when they try on one of her one of a kind garments gives her great satisfaction.
Sustainability plays a major part of Kome Clothing as Kjaer creates each piece from start to finish. She almost exclusively uses organic cotton, tencel, hemp, silk and linen, and purchases vintage and left-over fabrics.
Clients rave about her individual pieces as she designs garments for all body types from petite, plus, tall and curvy.
Kjaer’s runway collection was colourful, yet playful which can be worn for many occasions, from street wear to travel and special occasions such as weddings.
The Kone Clothing fashion show was a sold-out affair produced by Myriam Callot of Callot Events. A successful business woman, Callott was the evening MC and one of ten models on the runway. Fashion model’s hair and make-up was by Keely Bartlett, Lexi Bartlett and Hallah Donovan.
Callot Events has produced fashion, art, gala and charity events for over ten years and has work with designers appearing at Vancouver Fashion Week.
The evening Kome Clothing fashion show was about adding some fashion fun to your wardrobe which is something we all need today.
