Fashion Group International nominates Kathy this year as a Rising Star in the category of Interior Design, a prestigious award determined by a body of Fashion Group International members, community leaders, and fashion enthusiasts throughout the Dallas community.

 

The always stylish and on-trend Kathy is a rising star in the Dallas fashion scene. She has further expanded her already established presence in the fashion and design markets by launching Kathy Fielder Design | Life | Style, which encompasses a wide variety of home, fashion, and lifestyle products all made in her studio in her Dallas. Isabella Collection and IC Linen Co are sold globally in prestige retailers such as Neiman Marcus, The Horchow Collection, One Kings Lane, and Rue La La.

Although design has taken center stage in her life, it’s Kathy’s family that is closest to her heart. She lives in Dallas with her husband Jeromy, a Senior Regional VP in Marketing. They are the proud parents of two children, Isabella and Harrison. Additionally, Kathy is a ribbon-winning equestrian and serves as the Director of Development on the Board of Equest, a 35 year old organization that uses horse therapy for veterans and children with disabilities.

NEW STUFF: In addition, more specifically to licensing, I have a licensed furniture line that will premiere in Vegas in January. KF for Atlantic Furniture. I also have a deal with a Chinese factory in bedding and soft goods for distribution here in the US. We are currently discussing the opportunity for licensing of KF in China and distribution through their factory.

I am launching with QVC in January as well and have just received a licensing offer for that line as well by another factory which is currently under negotiation.

Finally, I am also working with a rug Manufacturer on a line of branded rugs for launch this fall.

Outside of that, I own, manufacture  and domestically produce here in the USA a couple lines of bedding for the past decade  – Isabella Collection by Kathy Fielder and IC Linen Co by Kathy Fielder. I have sold to many major retailers, including one of the longest running bedding collection at Neimans and Horchow, named Maria Christina.

Other than that, I do a local TV segment called The Fielder Report, have a blog KF Design | Life | Style, and a retail shop / studio here in Dallas.
