Kristen Dorsey Designs, LLC was founded in 2011 by Kristen Dorsey, an award-winning Chickasaw metalsmith living and working in Huntington Beach, CA. For Kristen, jewelry goes beyond ornamental adornment; it is a medium with which she has forged her cultural identity as a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, a Native American tribe originally from the southeast.  Utilizing natural gemstones, precious metals, and other materials, her handcrafted jewelry pieces are a unique mix of Chickasaw visual traditions infused with inspiration drawn from the beauty of the California Coast.  Dorsey’s philosophy is that “jewelry is a sacred narrative; it captures moments of significance for the wearer such as transitions in life, relationships with one another, and with one’s community, cultural identity, and spirituality.”

This past weekend's events in San Diego were filled with fashion, excitement, promise, and press. KDD collaborated with Pink Lagoon boutique for the Project Ethos, 5th annual fashion show in San Diego. The events started off with an interview with Cindy from The Pulse San Diego. Cindy asked about the art, tradition, technique and inspiration behind KDD designs, click to see the full feature on The Pulse. The cameras captured the styling and careful selection of the eight runway looks for Friday's Show.

The Project Ethos fashion show Friday, July 26th at FLUXX night club provided a fast-paced and edgy environment.

KDD was the last designer to walk down the runway. KDD and and Pink Lagoon created a cohesive, chic and modern collection. The models wore natural, earthy tones that highlighted KDD designs beautifully…they say, you leave the best for last, right?
