HI! I am Kristin Meek owner and designer of IshKabibbles Designs!
My story begins when I started college with the hope of becoming a marine biologist. One class led to another and I soon found myself sitting in a business class being taught by Mr.Kitzmiller. This wonderful professor saw a potential designer in me that I did not even know existed. He suggested I enter a design contest and I won first place! A A.S. Degree in Business Management , A.S. Degree in Fashion Design and years of internships later , well here I am selling my tropical designs on ETSY!
I Love to design and sew clothing that have classic silhouettes appliqued with tropical Hawaiian fabrics. I came up with this process when I first opened my ETSY shop and it has become my signature look . You will see this design on many of my sundresses and my unique line of tropical wedding dresses.
I also enjoy textile/fabric design. All of my organic cotton/scarf designs are from original art work that has been printed on organic cotton using eco-friendly water based inks. My casual line of tops also have my art work appliqued on them.
Even though I never became a marine biologist, the sea , creatures that call it home and the laid back island lifestyle are the inspirations for all of my designs.
