Jen Kao

Made in New York, Jen Kao's eponymous line debuted in spring of 2008. Kao was born in Los Angeles and raised in Kansas, later studying Studio Art at NYU. She had a passion for fine art but soon discovered an interest in textile construction. After NYU, she obtained a graduate degree in fashion design from Parsons. 
Nowadays, Kao is known for being innovative and experimental with her silhouettes, materials, and prints. The designs are created with a specific customer in mind: Kao says that her customer "is a woman who is always moving and always making things move." Kao's customer knows how to intelligently convey her sexuality and appreciates comfort.
