Featured Shop: Poisoned Creations

by: xannabotx

I had the pleasure of interviewing Kim – the mastermind behind Poisoned Creations. From pencil skirts to sock monsters, this lovely lady can do it all!

Your designs have a definite rockabilly flair. What started the obsession with pencil skirts and hair pieces?

I've always made them for myself. My husband and I go to a lot of car shows and making them I was able to make to my style and customize to my hearts desire. I was getting requests for the designs so I decided to take it to the next level and change the focus of my shop.

Where do you get inspiration for your designs?

All of my designs are inspired by culture, tattoos, music, car and burlesque shows. All of those drive my passion and where my ideas flow from. Sometimes ideas come in my sleep. Very weird!

What are your favorite materials/prints to work with?

I love animal print! I tend to use it a lot! I'm a sucker for leopard print in any color!

What is your favorite thing to make and why?

I have been enjoying making the mini top hats. It's something rather new to my line and each one I can make unique! It gives me a break to refocus after sewing the customs I have.

How has Poisoned Creations evolved and where do you hope to see yourself in the future?

I've had people ask if I'm wearing a Poisoned Creations skirt when I'm out. That has been nice to be recognized. I'm hoping that will be world wide one day haha! Also I'm hoping to one day quit my full time job and make Poisoned Creations my only full time job.
