Three years ago Kimberly Richardson decided to take a leap and do something she had always dreamed of – become a designer. She recently moved from Texas to NYC and is pursuing her passion there. With training from the Art Institute of New York City and a family of seamstresses, Kimberly has fashion design in her blood.

Why she’ll win?

Richardson has keen eye for fashion, strong sewing and pattern-making skills and the philosophy, “a person should wear the clothes and not let it wear them”.
