Born and raised on the beautiful island of Tortola, British Virgin Islands, Kristin is the third generation in a family of women whose keen eyes for color and purity of design have always been coupled with a direct sense of fashion-forward style.
In 2008, she birthed her company called Trèfle and focused on swimwear for women. After a few years of fashion events came a new thought of creating a kids swimwear line called Trèfle284 for girls that was launched in late 2013. This was shortly followed by a new resort-wear collection for women that would complete any ‘head-to-toe’ Trèfle look. With achievements of fashion shows from as far south as Guyana to as far north as New York, and write-ups in local, regional and international magazines such as Martha Stewart, Marie Claire, Ebony and Essence, Kristin is more than just ‘one to watch’…she’s moving boldly to become the iconic Caribbean swimwear fashionista of our generation.
From adventures in Lisbon, Portugal under the 2014 “Britain is GREAT” campaign as the only British Overseas Territory Designer with delightful pop-up meetings and tea, to designing the BVI Olympic team’s outfit for the RIO 2016 Olympics opening ceremony, her experiences and designs have been recognized through an array of events both locally and internationally. Her bold and original prints have since surfaced in early 2016 with the launch of her Atacama swim and resort collection and she continues to expand her love for creating prints that can diversify through all areas of the brand.
Kristin received an award of Caribbean Excellence in Fashion in Washington, D.C. by Karib Nation, Inc. and the Pioneer of the Year Award from the BVICCHA in the BVI in 2014. With International celebrity singers like Beyoncé and Chrisette Michele, as well as Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy now wearing her designs, she is catapulting her company to another level and will soon introduce Trèfle Home products to the market.
