Next up in my Cincinnati Fashion Night Sneak Peek series (last week I featured Style Room 326) is GKM Design, another one of our fabulous local designers who will rock the runway July 22!

I met the founder and designer Geetha years ago, and I remember her being a stunning beauty who was impeccably dressed. This was back when becoming a fashion designer was a figment of her imagination…  she was working a 9-5, with no formal training in fashion or design. But since then, she got married, and that’s what sparked her passion that had been smoldering all those years. She had a vision for the kind of bridesmaids dresses that married (pun intended) her Indian culture’s love for color, fabric and embellishment, but with American silhouettes and dress design influences. She couldn’t find what she was looking for, so she created her own. And after that, she created special occasion dresses for herself and others. Today, it’s a full-blown business that will debut on a runway for the first time at our event. We’ll also learn about the women and business partners around the world that her sales provide sustainable jobs for. Click here to learn more about Geetha and GKM Designs, and see her creations for yourself on July 22 at our second annual Cincinnati Fashion Night! Details below!
