Designer and Creator of Scissor Clothing
Coast to Coast...
A born and raised New Yorker, found her home and niche on the Central Coast of California.
With her concrete jungle - meets - bohemian sun style. Miss Kate has brought comfort and fun to a constantly growing and overwhelmed industry. As much of a perfectionist as she is, her goal is to not take herself, others, and especially her pieces too seriously.
Sewing since the age of ten, with help from her mother and grandmother, and her father an aircraft mechanic, she consumed herself in a put-together-take-apart world.
After attaining a BFA in Apparel Design from The Fashion Institute of Technology, in Manhattan, she moved west, to satisfy her creative side.
In October 2008 she launched the first line under Scissor Clothing. In 2017 she opened a retail shop in Atascadero, CA. Here she carries the brand, curated vintage clothing and home goods, plants, and vinyl.
"I am spoiled, my family, my surroundings, my thrift shopping...."
