Inclusive AF, we deliver inspired street style looks to all shapes and sizes, celebrating the social and cultural diversity that makes our world so rad. Our motto: Don’t Hate!ABOUT KAY CHARBONNET
Kay’s first foray into fashion design was on the knee of her abuela, a Cuban immigrant and dressmaker. Kay took up the sketchbook and began designing in high school when she and her abuela collaborated on her prom gown.
Kay received a B.A. in Fashion Design from Marymount University in Virginia, continued her studies abroad as an apprentice to London bridal designer Angela Stone and later as a student of couture draping at Paris’ American Academy. Kay took her studies one step further when she pursued advanced design studies at Drexel University in Pennsylvania.
A New Orleans native, Kay returned home where she designed and constructed custom evening, bridal and cocktail apparel under her own KMC Design Studios. When Kay recognized a void in the local marketplace for her edgy street style, in December 2014, she opened Kay’s on Magazine Street and launched shopkays.com in October 2016.WHAT WE LOVE
