Branding Statement/ Bio info:
Welcome you to Lady Konnyaku! This colorful collection takes the bold stylings of 1960s Mod clothing & mixes it with the fun positivity & youthful splendor found in Japanese street fashion. A refreshing beam of sunshine that breaks through a muted backdrop, Lady Konnyaku brings fiercely unique clothing to the ladies who wear it & a conversation to the lips of those who observe.
A non-seasonal, sustainable clothing line, Lady Konnyaku employs a mix of high quality, hard to find new & vintage fabrics & findings, often times only found in small quantities. Through a combination of flat patternmaking & draping, each garment is thoughtfully created & sewn from start to finish by Lady Konnyaku designer, Malia Peoples. This results in the utmost in smart stylings & attention to detail, with a look that is often times one-of-a-kind. 100% designer made in Seattle, Washington, USA!
Lady Konnyaku offers this crazy stylish collection to creative ladies who are young & young at heart. These ladies live artfully each day and keep an eyeball out to the streets of Asia, more so than an eye on the pouty runways of Europe. Lady Konnyaku appeals to those who enjoy carving out an independent, light-hearted personal style that sometimes runs parallel to mainstream trends & fads. Life is fun, & there’s much to be happy about… Be yourself with LK!
Price Point: $150 & under.
Vendors: I would like to expand online sales/ begin selling in the Portland, Oregon or San Francisco area.
