Kim Legler is a Vancouver-based Fashion Designer. She is a graduate of La Salle College and has been designing for about 7 years now. Kim is originally from Yellowknife, and comes from a fine-art background. She is often inspired by nature & the vibrancy of city-life. You will see this contrast in a lot of her work. Kim’s design aesthetic is minimalistic, yet feminine. Her silhouettes are mostly tailored, and clean-lined. Her mission is to create wearable clothes that can easily be incorporated into everyday life & into a pre-existing wardrobe. Kim Legler designs for the modern, sophisticated, and effortless type of woman.
