ABOUT

 I AM A CANADIAN BORN ARTIST WHO NOW CREATES TIMELESS, ETHICAL AND VERY WELL MADE CLOTHING.  I AM A ONE WOMAN BUSINESS!  I CHOOSE TO MAKE VERY SPECIAL PIECES THAT YOU WILL PROUDLY WEAR.  I WORK SLOWLY, CAREFULLY AND LOVINGLY ON EACH INDIVIDUAL GARMENT.  

I CREATE FOR EVERY SIZE WOMAN.. PETITE, PLUS, TALL, CURVY.  I WANT YOU TO ROCK -YOUR- BODY IN MY CLOTHES.  I TRULY BELIEVE THAT EVERY SIZE IS BEAUTIFUL AND EVERY PIECE IS ALWAYS MADE WITH LOVE PERSONALLY BY ME.

MY INTENTION IS TO CREATE GARMENTS  THAT ARE UNIQUE, FLATTERING AND  EVERYDAY EXTRAORDINARY.  MY GOAL IS THAT YOU CAN RELAX IN YOUR BODY AND FEEL TOTALLY ALIVE, GORGEOUS AND VERY COMFORTABLE.  LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND FEEL GREAT!  YOUR CHOSEN GARMENTS ARE VERSATILE AND TRAVEL WELL AS MOST ARE LIGHT AS A FEATHER.  

WOMEN PURCHASE MY LINE FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS, STREETWEAR, CRUISE WEAR, STAGE PERFORMANCES BY BOTH ACTORS AND SINGERS, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE OR GROOM AND I HAVE SHIPPED LITERALLY ALL OVER THE WORLD.  MY GARMENTS HAVE OFTEN BEEN WORN AT THE VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK (I HAVE BEEN ASKED REPEATEDLY TO SHOW AT THE VFW) AND EVEN HAVE TAKEN THE STAGE AT THE AUSTRALIAN FASHION WEEK.  

YES, MY ULITMATE DESIRE IN MY ONE OF A KIND KOME LINE, IS TO HAVE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE .... WHICH INCLUDES NOT ONLY HUNDREDS OF GARMENTS IN MY STUDIO BUT, ALSO BUDGET SALE ITEMS ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE TOO.

  ——-

MY STUDIO IS IN A VIBRANT STUDIO BOUTIQUE IN NORTH VANCOUVER.  I CREATE EVERYTHING THERE, FROM START TO FINISH.  I MAKE EACH GARMENT MYSELF, ONE BY ONE, WITHOUT USING SEWING PATTERNS SO THAT EACH PIECE IS ORIGINAL AND MY LINE IS EVER CHANGING.  I CHOOSE TO NOT SELL TO STORES SO THAT I CAN KEEP MY LINE AFFORDABLE.

I AM OPEN EVERY FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH FROM 12 TO 4 AND ABSOLUTELY EASILY ANY TIME AT ALL WITH A TEXT, MESSAGE OR A CALL - 604-612-6070

AT MY KOME STUDIO, YOU CAN FEEL TOTALLY COMFORTABLE WITH NO OBLIGATION TO BUY.  MY LOVELY STUDIO IS INFORMAL, PERSONALIZED AND PRIVATE.  MY CREATIONS ARE AFFORDABLE, UNIQUE AND SO VERY COMFORTABLE.  TRY HUNDREDS OF ONE OF A KIND CREATIONS ALL DESIGNED, CUT AND SEWN BY KJAER.  THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING A SMALL BUSINESS AND AN ETHICAL WAY OF SHOPPING.  I LOVE SILKS, RAYONS, BAMBOO AND STILL FIND SOME POLYESTERS I LOVE. I SUPPORT CANADIAN FABRIC COMPANIES WHEN I CAN.  I USE RECYCLED CLOTHING OFTEN AND RECREATE IT.  I ALWAYS DONATE SCRAPS TO ANOTHER SEAMSTRESS WHO USES EVERY BIT OF FABRIC FOR ALL SORTS OF CREATIVE IDEAS.  I GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY BY DONATING TO THE LOCAL WOMEN IN NEED.

    THINKING ABOUT WHAT WOMEN WANT FROM CLOTHES, KJAER--A DANISH NAME, PRONOUNCED “CARE”--NELETIA PEDERSEN SAW A NEED AND SET ABOUT MEETING IT. 
     
    “WOMEN OF ALL AGES AND SIZES WANT TO DRESS WITH STYLE, CONFIDENCE AND EASE,” KJAER SAYS. “WE WANT TO LOOK GOOD AND FEEL FABULOUS.” THE PROBLEM WAS FAMILIAR TO HER: HANDMADE ARTISTIC CLOTHES ARE USUALLY MADE TO BE WORN AT SPECIAL OCCASIONS, NOT EVERY DAY. SO SHE DECIDED TO CREATE A LINE OF TIMELESS, AGELESS, AND EVEN SIZELESS FASHION THAT IS BOTH ELEGANT AND AS EASY TO WEAR FOR EVENING, WORK AND TRAVEL AS IT IS FOR PLAY. THE RESULT WAS HER KOME LINE--STYLISH, UNIQUE AND RELAXED. 
     
    SHE HAS BEEN AN ARTIST (AND ART TEACHER) ALL HER LIFE, A PASSION INHERITED FROM HER DANISH FATHER. SHE HAS DRAWN PORTRAITS IN CHARCOAL AND WORKED IN PAINTS AND PASTELS. SHE WAS ALSO A DEDICATED POTTER. BUT WHEN SHE BEGAN WORKING WITH FABRIC SHE KNEW SHE HAD FOUND HER TRUE MEDIUM. 
     
    “THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT CLOTHING TRANSFORMS YOU, EMPOWERS YOU AND GIVES YOU JOY,” SHE SAYS. IN FACT, MAKING PEOPLE FEEL GOOD IS HER MAIN MOTIVATION. IT’S A LOT OF WORK: AS WELL AS DESIGNING AND SEWING ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECES, SHE ALSO DOES HER OWN MARKETING. THESE DAYS A LOT OF SALES COME FROM HER WEBSITE.
     
    “I FOCUS ON JACKETS, USING BAMBOO, RAYON, POLYESTER AND MY REAL LOVE, SILK. AS WELL AS DRESSES I MAKE RUANAS (A KIND OF OPEN-FRONTED WRAP) PONCHOS, TOPS, TANKS AND TUNICS.”
     
    RUNNING A ONE-WOMAN BUSINESS IS A CHALLENGE. SOURCING CAN BE A PROBLEM, AND KJAER TRIES TO USE CANADIAN SUPPLIERS WHEN SHE CAN.  SHE MOST ENJOYS BUYING MATERIALS IN SMALL QUANTITIES IN HER TRAVELS SO THAT EACH PIECE IS DIFFERENT.
     
    “I WANT TO CREATE JOY IN MY CLOTHING LINE,” SHE SAYS. AND REGULARLY SHE SUCCEEDS. “I SEE WOMEN AT MY SELLING EVENTS TRYING ON A PIECE AND LITERALLY DANCING.”

    TOO much info?... haha... well, here is more :)

    I am an artist. I have a B.A. and a B.Ed in ART. I was a teacher and have taught art at in Grades 1 to 12 and at the University Level. My lifelong passion of personally creating has taken many various art forms over the years. Most recently this has evolved into designing and sewing unique, affordable, and one of a kind clothing for all sized women. I free hand cut and sew every piece myself.

    Women LOVE my work... comments include ... "stunning designs, unique, striking fabrics, comfortable, versatile, flattering, FUN!, sophisticated, casual, dressy, reasonably priced, always look and feel fabulous, easy to wear, timeless, and that the individual garments are all unique in style".

    I sell at local events and shows, pop up boutiques, fashion shows, home markets, my North Vancouver Studio, all over the world on line, at markets including Circle Craft, Butterdome, Out Of Hand, Portobello West, Calgary Signature Show, Kris Kringle and at the Filberg Festival (my favourite place and my best customers!!).

    As an artist who has always been passionate about creating every day, there is no doubt that it is exciting and rewarding to watch every age, and every size of woman slip into my comfortable fashionable creations.

    Dressing is now easy and effortless. Most pieces can be used for all occasion dressing and they are ideal for travel. Women KNOW when they both look and feel fabulous ... and my line is perfect for daily and special event wear.
