Fink (Fashion + ink) is a collection of handmade garments created in my home studio. My name is Kristen and I am an independent artist and designer living in the vibrant Central West End neighborhood of St Louis.
Everything you see on iheartfink.com is made by me – I am a one woman business and make everything myself – from start to finish – right here in my studio.
I create my own fabric designs then make one of a kind, wearable-art pieces from my imagination.
I hand print all of my fabrics myself using silkscreens made from my original drawings and high quality fabric inks I custom mix per print. Hand pulled printing is a labor, time and material intensive process and well worth the effort!
I make each garment myself – one by one – without the use of sewing patterns. My process keeps each piece unique and very special.
Every garment is “everyday extraordinary” – you will look forward to expressing yourself while you participate in the adventure of being totally alive.
When you buy handmade, you are supporting the arts. Art inspires the soul; you are promoting a better and more beautiful world.
