The word ‘heroes’ sounds like it’s a select group of people you look up to and can’t attain, but we all have the ability to drive progress!
Kathleen Elie has loved fashion from an early age. Her grandfather was a tailor and her mother a nurse by-trade but naturally-gifted designer. She grew up wearing her mom’s creations and learning about quality craftsmanship. It runs in her blood but she initially was pre-med and then studied business before something inside her “clicked” and led her to pursue a fashion career.
All season, we'll be featuring Heroes who've made a positive difference in the world - meet more Heroes here. Learn more about our commitment to the environment and our communities at our Responsibilities Page.
