Dr. Karen Kohfeld is a professor in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University. She sent us this little story:
"...As you may know, I'm a regular Diane Kennedy customer and have worn your clothing at many talks that I have given in Montreal, Sweden, and Australia. They give me an extra boost of confidence when I need to stand in front of a large crowd. I recently was honored with an award from Stockholm University, and they asked me for a professional headshot for the press release. I'm not particularly fond of being photographed, so I was in a bit of a pickle."
I arrived with my recently self-trimmed COVID-19 hair cut and an entire wardrobe of Diane Kennedy clothing. This clothing, plus a little bit of sand in my hands, put me at ease. Anyway, I wanted to thank you again for making me feel comfortable in my skin - this time in front of a camera!"
We were so touched by her charming note, we wanted to hear more from her; so we sent her a few questions, which she graciously answered. She even sent along the aforementioned headshots, taken in the Fall!
Dr. Kohfeld is wearing our Perception Tunic & Heather Charcoal Cozy Coat
We noticed you've been a customer with us since 2015! How did you find out about us?
I bought my first item (a wonderful pair of bamboo cotton pants) from Bodacious boutique when they used to be on Main Street (well before 2015.) I still have and wear those pants! I rediscovered the DK line when a friend posted a picture in a beautiful Cherry Velvet dress. I went to the website and followed the link to Diane Kennedy. In fact, I first visited your studio down in Gastown before you moved to the Powell Street location. I love coming to the studio - such a great space, and it's usually a try-on party! Your staff and customers are so supportive, helpful, and honest (in a good way).
What's your favourite DK item?
Ooooo. This is actually the hardest question! 🙂
Right now I practically live in the Illustrate Tunic, which I have in two colors (soon to be three, I hope!), and a simple pair of Bamboo Leggings, which I usually wear under my Heather Charcoal Cozy Coat . Overall I just love the bamboo fabrics the most. They are designed to flatter curves, and they are sooo soft!
We're so flattered - Thank you so much for your support! We absolutely love hearing from our customers, don't hesitate to drop us a line!
