Kimberly Corday

Kimberly Corday is the Los Angeles-based brand merging coquette-core and punkdom with upcycled couture. Corday, the founder and designer, has been crafty and creative from a young age—she picked up painting when she was seven and went on to study fine art at RISD college. In her postgraduate career, Corday began working with textiles and incorporating material investigations into her art practice. This led to Corday creating her first collection of clothing amidst the global pandemic, embarking on a new study centered around repurposed fibers and the human form.

Corday’s feminine yet edgy designs are made from found textiles such as oldfangled upholstery, furskins, and boudoir remnants. Working solely with repurposed materials, Corday cuts, collages, and manipulates fibers to create her masterfully tailored collections. The designer draws inspiration from the peculiar mischief, sexuality, and splendor in Rococo art—tops and skirts are composed of pale pink satin lingerie cases, layered bustiers, and jacquard ribbon—mixing the mess with the pretty. Kimberly Corday pieces have been seen worn by celebrities and artists such as Weyes Blood, Julia Fox, Haley Lu Richardson, and Michelle Zauner. Each piece encompasses layers of storytelling and whimsy—as the body becomes the canvas for Corday’s creations to truly come to life and walk among us.
