Kim Vanyo was trained at the highly prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology. She has an
unconventional, artful approach to wardrobe separates. The philosophy is to inspire the wearer
to see dressing through a new prism, to wear garments that not only look good, but also feel
good. Vanyo’s designs are rich with color, pattern and texture with inventive silk pattern linings
thus inviting a positive feeling inside and out. Fit and workmanship are at the center of every

Kim Vanyo designs and creates custom couture formalwear as
well as a ready-to-wear line of separates. Before deciding on apparel design as a profession
Vanyo was an avid student of classical ballet. Her dance experience coupled with her apparel
design created a niche as a costume designer for dancers of all genres. About half of her
present business is costuming much of which is for the Skidmore College Dance Department.
Vanyo’s deep knowledge of movement translates into all of her design work and solidifies her
belief in a garment looking well, performing well and feeling well!
