Meet the creative force

Hi, I'm Kate.

I'm all about the thrill of transformation! Whenever I dive into a new batch of vintage shirts, it's like embarking on a treasure hunt, searching for those hidden gems to bring back to life. And let me tell you, there's nothing quite like the excitement of discovering a shirt's potential to become something truly special.


We believe in celebrating uniqueness. That's why it's our mission to breathe life into vintage shirts and transform them into one-of-a-kind pieces of art... kind of like you.


We know you've been caught stealing your boyfriend's shirts (or your husband's or dad's). Trust us, we've done it too. We just give them the perfect makeover to match your style and shape.


WE craft KMJ shirts so you can look fabulous and feel empowered. We want you to feel like your best self every time you step out in your favorite piece.


I've always had an eye for fashion. I vividly recall orchestrating impromptu fashion shows with my childhood friends, using nothing but a simple white Hanes shirt as my canvas. Fast forward to winning the 1998 Young Designer of America Competition – an unforgettable milestone that kickstarted my journey in the fashion world. My design for the 'Gene' Doll not only earned me a spot at the prestigious Toy Fair in NYC but also paved the way for my enrollment in art school. Fuelled by passion, I left my retail job to launch my first brand, pioneering pants that fit like a dream.

Today, as the driving force behind KMJ, I'm still on a mission to empower women through fashion. With each repurposed shirt, I'm not just creating clothing; I'm igniting a movement where every woman feels confident, powerful, and unapologetically herself. Because at KMJ, we believe the future is female, and every stitch tells a story of resilience, creativity, and empowerment.


I watch my young girls get ready each morning. They put together their outfits and dance in front of the mirror with this sense of fantasy and self-expression. That's the magic I want them to hold onto while dreaming big, and the magic I want women to feel when they put on one of my shirts!
