I've been where you are...


I quit my corporate 9-5 job with a whisper of a belief that it just MIGHT be possible for me to start my own business, and live life on my own terms.


I had such little belief in myself that during my exit interview I even said to my boss, “if my business doesn’t work out within the next few months, will you take me back?”  How sad! 

Thankfully I quickly realized that listening to that small whisper within, and betting on myself, was (and still is) the absolute BEST decision I could have ever made.  

In my first year of business,

  • I experienced more freedom than I ever had in my life.

(woke up to no alarm, took mid-day work outs, baths, & naps whenever I wanted, had unlimited vacation days, took spontaneous trips, & spent extra time with family & friends, etc).

  • I created my dream products and business.

  • I worked 1 on 1 with inspiring entrepreneurs and actually saw the difference I was making in their lives. 

  • & I made six figures, 4X the yearly salary that I was making as a  fashion designer in the heart of New York City. 

And in my second year of business...

"Finding talent that truly stands out is a rare gem. The 3D files blew us away! It looks like our product is actually on there! The team at ApparelKit are an extraordinary mix of fashion designers, and have profoundly impressed us. 


We love your approach to fashion. It’s holistic and detail-oriented. Each tech pack you produced for us was a blueprint of creativity, precision, and technical expertise. Every stitch, seam, and fabric specification was thoughtfully detailed, ensuring a flawless process going forward.


Beyond talent, Just the collaborative spirit truly sets you guys apart. You immersed yourselves in our brand, contributing positively to our vision. 


In short, this partnership has not only enriched our brand, but has also made a path for a more creative and sustainable future in fashion."

Caroline & Lizzy, NY

"Working with the Kayla since starting our  brand has been nothing short of a dream. The team is professional, very experienced, and always exceeds expectations. But above all else, we truly trust Kayla & the team so much. We can always  count on Kayla to have an opinion,  problem-solve when necessary, and contribute such fresh and clean design  ideas. She has become an integral part of our team and we absolutely LOVE working  with ApparelKit!"

Ben, FL

"Working with Kayla was a wonderful experience. She's very professional and friendly. Kayla turned our ideas into reality and understood very well our brand and what we were looking for. We'll definitely be working with her and the team again."

Jessica, CA

“One of the things that I have enjoyed the most about working with Kayla and the ApparelKit team is that they are very friendly, positive and cooperative. 


It’s clear that the team truly wants their clients to succeed. Being new to this area, I I was a bit overwhelmed at the begining,  however the team held my hand, was very cooperative, and happily worked through my confusion to ensure I was more than happy with the outcome. I will definitely be working with them on my next collection.” 

Shawnie, NY

"We really enjoyed working with Kayla and the rest of the team at ApparelKit…. They’re pros. Will definitely use them again for future design projects."

Nour, NY

“ApparelKit was the perfect fit for developing my activewear collection! I appreciated the team’s eagerness and true interest for making the collection unique, functional and sellable. I’m so happy with the team’s work.” 

Denise, CA

"Thank you so much Kayla & the team for another amazing job well done! :)


The team at ApparelKit is extremely knowledgable about their trade and have been invaluable in providing input with regards to design. For example, suggesting different stitching types to create a more luxury feel and suggesting seam placements for maximum comfort.  I found this knowledge and the team’s willingness to share their knowledge freely so valuable as a start-up brand, and their generosity in sharing her knowledge is much appreciated.”

Jillian, CA

“ApparelKit is passionate about creating beautiful designs that are unique and also sellable. I am so happy with the beautiful collection the team has designed for me :) Thank you so much Kayla, Chase and the rest of the ApparelKit team. I hope to work together again on future collections!”
