Hey, Shuga Sunshine! I’m  Keyana ‘KD’ Dawson, and I’m here to turn you into a whole damn vibe.

I’ve been into fashion for as long as I can remember. I grew up watching my grandmother sew, and while I didn’t have the spark back then, it ignited when I got in high school. 

I had these grand ideas for how I wanted to express myself through fashion. The problem was I could never find my ideas in stores. 

So I started to take matters into my own hands. 

I bought a hand-me-down sewing machine from my uncle when I was in the 11th grade, and I started deconstructing clothes in order to make my designs. 

I remember seeing Mary J. Blige with a bad-ass pair of boots that I just had to have, but I couldn’t find them anywhere, and even if I could, let’s be real, my 11th-grader pocketbook wouldn’t have allowed me to afford them, so I tore up a pair of jeans and turned the bottom of those jeans into the very boots the queen was rocking…

I took all of that passion and went to fashion design school almost 2 decades ago and since then I’ve been specializing in creating the same custom designs I began creating for myself back in my high-school days for other women who want a style that’s not like anyone else’s.  

I believe that every woman should be empowered to wear what she wants and to dress how she feels.
I design for the woman who wants to express herself in the ways that are most unique and authentic to her.
I’m giving YOU permission to break some rules with me and make something special, Sunshine
