Of Her Own Kind is a womenswear clothing studio based in Brooklyn and made locally in New York centered around craft, sustainability, and vintage inspired details.
We believe in creating wearable yet beautiful pieces that can be worn season after season and give their wearer a sense of comfort, ease, and delight
Our mission is fewer, more unique items crafted with the intent of bringing light and joy.
Our Made, Found, & Burn markets showcase unique, one-of-a-kind timeless pieces that carry a story and bring a certain beauty, magic, and joy to their surroundings while supporting small scale makers.
Founded in 2016, Of Her Own Kind is designed & founded by Kathryn Alex inspired by her childhood in New England, summers spent at her grandparents' farmhouse in rural Maine, and the beauty of upstate New York. Kathryn honed her skills in luxury design while working as a designer at Prabal Gurung where she learned that beautifully made clothes can never be made fast.
These places all exposed her to the beauty of craftsmanship and the care, love, and dedication which a maker brings to their art.
