KERISMA celebrates diversity through comfort & versatility in modern knitwear. We are a boutique fashion label that offers a full Autumn/Winter collection and a condensed Spring/Summer collection. We aim to bridge the gap between disposable fast-fashion brands and exclusive premium labels in the contemporary knitwear market. Each style is consciously designed with the creative, intelligent and free-spirited woman in mind. Her aesthetic sensibilities are drawn from the vast beauty and longevity of nature and architecture.
The label was founded in the Spring of 2010 by father & daughter duo – Phil Ke & Lihui Ke – from their combined passion, charisma and professional practice in fashion production, design and architecture. Their trans-continental upbringing in Wenzhou, Paris, and New York allows for unique designs to emerge through form, scale, material and color considerations. Today, a decade later in Los Angeles, our family-owned & operated business continues to support small independent retailers & select boutique chain nationwide and overseas.
As an immigrant family, community-building, philanthropy and hospitality are a big part of our Chinese heritage and brand identity. KERISMA continually explores with the local & international creatives on unique collaborations, seasonal campaigns and capsule collections. Since Fall of 2020, we pledge to donate 2% of our yearly profits towards Arts & Culture programs that support diversity, cultural & ethnic preservation, and expansion towards future generations.
KERISMA is conscious of the fashion industry’s environmental impact and aims to be plastic polybag-free by Fall 2023.
