About this project
Mien Kielo is an up and coming NYC based women's fashion line designed by Jess Laakso Hammond (a RISD alumnus in Apparel Design with a Master's from Istituto Marangoni, Milan) and best friend Katie Lerch. We are raising funds to purchase showroom space for the F/W 2013 buying period. We need to be in a showroom during this time in order to get in front of those people/stores that may be interested in retailing this collection. We have already been invited to a showroom in Soho, and upon receipt of funds we will be able to pay for this latest accomplishment and hopefully get in front of potential buyers. Our line is starting to pick up momentum, and we need this push to increase our exposure during Fashion Week.
Check out our website www.MienKielo.com to discover what our designs are all about: hand-worked details, specially designed prints, and wearable beauty. If you have any further questions, e-mail me at Jess@MienKielo.com and I’ll be happy to answer them!.
Mien Kielo has received great feedback from style editors and has received interest already from a major New York City based retailer. Please help us realize our dream! Here are some press links for our SS13 Collection to take a look at:
Risks and challenges
If we reach our goal, we will be able to pay our showroom fees through the end of the FW13 selling period. Once that period is over we will start production based on the orders we receive from our showroom appointments. The next step will be the challenge of getting funds for production of the collection. We feel that this won't be AS difficult because it will be a low-risk investment - we will already have the orders and will know the money will come back to the investors in a matter of months. Then we'll let you all know where you can buy the collection in the Fall!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
