EMERGING DESIGNER

Rain King

I
nnovative. Funky. Bold. Eclectic. These are a few adjectives that describe fun-chic designs of “Kissed by Rain”.
Sewing at the astounding early age of six years old, Rain King was destined for greatness. Her Grandmother being a highly skilled seamstress, taught Rain everything she knows when it comes to fashion. The hobby that began just for leisure activity, turned into a dynamic lifestyle.

In early adolescence, while other young girls were trying to be "down" with the latest trends, Rain was creating them. At the age of thirteen she had her first fashion show, which set the path for her very bright future. Even though Kissed by Rain came about during her high school years, it wasn’t until 2006 that it became its own entity. When Kissed by Rain made its debut, it was an exclusive collection and only a few select items were in production.
Relentless, Rain had fashion shows at almost every college in New York, which prompted an amazing write up in Seventeen Magazine. As her popularity grew, she earned a following as well as much buzz, that claimed her to be the up-and-comer to watch out for.

Influenced by her ever changing surroundings, her pieces tell a story. Music definitely plays a role in her styles. Artists like MIA, Kelis, and Katy Perry give inspiration to her finished products. When asked who were some of her fashion icons that she admired? She replied “ Marc Jacobs, I call my husband. Coco Chanel is the Wife. The 3 children (which are rising star designers as well) are Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, and Tracy Reese (she would be the oldest Child).”

Seeing the end product before she begins anything, and not sketching or drawing her pieces out beforehand, sets her apart from the rest. Often compared to the icon Betsey Johnson and Heather Red, Rain is highly honored by the comparisons. Kissed by Rain is evolving into a household name on fashion planet and also has a charitable outlook on society. In January of 2009, there will be the official launch of Project Fashion, in the five boroughs, five designers will come together and choose five high school seniors, and one finalist will be given the ultimate Prom Fantasy. With a simple Kiss, its all about giving back.
