"Craft is where function meets passion and creates beauty"
Of Her Own Kind is a Brooklyn clothing studio inspired by the timeless beauty of pieces with a past, sustainability, and craft.
We believe in creating organic, natural fiber yet beautiful and timeless pieces that can be worn season after season and give their wearer a sense of comfort, ease, and delight.
All of our garments are created from organic, sustainable, or natural fibers and are sewn locally in New York supporting small family & women-owned factories and ateliers.
We believe in protecting the craft of sewing by using classic dressmaking techniques that require sewing as an artisanal skill to create beautiful pieces made to last.
Of Her Own Kind is designed & created by Kathryn Alex inspired by her passion for beautifully made clothing, summers spent at her grandparents 200 year old farmhouse in rural Maine, and the beauty of upstate New York.
Kathryn honed her skills in luxury design and dresses while working as a designer at Prabal Gurung where she learned that beautifully made clothes can never be made fast.
