GypsySoul-KimProfile-WEB_1024x1024{SS}: Can you tell us a bit about how you decided to start Stelari? Inspiration or anything you want to share about the inception of company? Does the name Stelari have significant meaning?

{Kim}: I feel my most authentic and best self when I am active and creating, so it was only natural to make clothes that are comfortable to wear for all the things I love to do. Creating a line that embraced my love of fashion, yoga and fitness is the clearest extension of who I am. I find my rhythm in that.

Stelari is about finding your rhythm in life to help you experience your truest self. u9Mra2WHmi95Zh08bc-LsU9hBPhm-Mhkg_4y-aEzgQM,EBAA9l8qb7I0J5Y0wFa660iRu0PxNuj7makhyw8Y8tM,uDhVVZxq1j3Uz4tOwpLg_XrCHxbranY8ZHJnT6XyNOI

{SS}: Currently can you list a few of your FAV pieces? 

{Kim}: I love the versatility of our free flow tanks. I love bringing them when I travel because they take such little room and don't wrinkle! I’ll wear one on a run or to a yoga class, and then slip on another to go out at night with jeans, heels and a cropped moto jacket. I’m also obsessed with our yoga mat towels because they absorb my sweat during hot yoga, they don’t bunch, and the artwork energizes me. They will soon be my best accessory poolside this summer. Screen-Shot-2015-02-15-at-2.11.06-PM1 Screen-Shot-2015-02-15-at-2.34.12-PM-307x392

{SS}: Can you share with us what products are considered "Eco fit fabric"?

{Kim}: All of our free flow tanks are constructed from 94% P.E.T. fabric. This fabric is made from post consumer waste like those plastic water bottles everyone uses and tosses. This earth-friendly material is lightweight, feels so soft and wicks moisture away from the skin. 

{SS}: YOUR secret to work / life balanced?

 {Kim}: My secret to work/life balance is the morning. Before the kids get up, I take “me” time to create. Not only does this set my day on the right path, but I find the early morning energy and solitude refreshes my mind, body and soul. Most of my creative inspirations occur during these early hours.

 {Kim}: I don’t use any specific fashion apps but I do follow several designers on Instagram and Pinterest. Pinterest is a great place for me to layout a visual representation of what I’m creating. My style is unique and I love seeing how other designers use fabrics, patterns, and artwork in their unique collections.

Now onto your personal style… 

{SS}: In regards to your personal style, do you have a signature accessory? 

{Kim}: My style is very Bohemian with an influence from the 70's hippy. I gravitate toward raw gemstones and one of a kind finds. I love accessories and always complete my outfit (day or night) with a big ring, chunky bracelet and/or a statement necklace.sorceress-Maevepound-pendant-amethyst-hang-new+copy

{SS}: A few items in your "Styleshack" A.K.A closet that you can't live without? 

{Kim}: "My Styleshack is filled with vintage and raw jersey jewelry, Rais Case purses, and BCBG leather jackets."
