About The Designer
Kristin Hardwick - Fashion Designer
Kristin Hardwick, age 23, was born and raised in a quaint town called “Delavan” located in Wisconsin. From little on, she was always very ambitious and loved doing hands-on activities or projects throughout her life and schooling. When she was introduced to fashion at a very young age through modeling, theatre, and dance, she started to develop a strong hobby that she adored very much...which was creating! Being highly influenced by many designers, she always envisioned herself taking part in the fashion industry. After college, various internships, and fashion shows, she decided it was time to take her creativity to the next step; opening up her very own storefront. "Fashion Design is very hands-on, you are constantly using your creative mind-set to develop new looks and styles that you never would have thought of! That is something I strive for in the fashion industry. There just aren't any rules!", as stated by the designer herself. She was also able to learn from others throughout her process and career. All of which were very beneficiary to her.
Some of the services her storefront offers includes custom design work, alterations, and embellishments. "I want to make sure that you come into Kristin Hardwick, LLC knowing that you are top priority. I want everyone to undergo a one-of-a-kind experience when it comes to altering your dream garment or starting completely from scratch."
Fashion is a way of finding your inner creativity and expressing who you are”
