Fashion, Jewelry and Decor Design
An experienced fashion photographer, model, boutique manager, merchandiser and buyer it only seemed natural for Chelcie S Porter to start her own line. She launched KINDRED in March of 2015. During her travels she sources sustainable garments, fabrics, beads and other materials for KINDRED. Some pieces features graphic images from her travels, others are sourced from tailors in remote communities or designed by Porter herself. In 2015 she began working directly with Thai tailors and hill tribe artisans to source some of the fabrics and details for her designs. KINDRED brand concentrates on modern, affordable and socially conscious clothing inspired by travel. In 2017 the brand will be adding a line of T-shirts featuring the artwork of Porter's late husband Andres Contreras.
