Katie Gibson

Wright Owner Fashion Los Alamitos, CA
About Katie
I am mother to Lincoln (7) and Grace (5) which of course is a full time job. However, in my spare time I am paid to help revitalize downtown neighborhoods, I am not paid to be the community relations director for my families foundation–The Nowell Family Foundation, and I am again not paid (yet!) to design dresses, jewelry and bags. As you can see I have had several careers in my lifetime. I went to FIDM for fashion and graphic design which I use in everything I do. Whenever I depart too long from design it always brings me back. The items I design are all made from recycled materials. The dresses from mens shirts, jewelry from wood scraps from furniture makers, and the bags from vintage obis and leather jackets. Giving things, including materials, people, and places, second chances is my purpose and passion. We all have a past. It's how you transform your perception and attitude to find beauty in the most unexpected places that matters.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I always want to showcase the best in people, places and things. Society focuses a lot on the negative, but at Wright, and in everything I do, I try to shine a light on the good things. I am great at coming up with ideas, constantly thinking and re-thinking. If there is an obstacle we can creatively think our way through to a solution, hence my title at my paying job to help revitalize neighborhoods, Creative Solutions Director.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Funding & Finance

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I am currently working very hard to get my clothing line off the ground. However, with two children, a full time job, no funding and a myriad of other obligations its been difficult. I am hoping to connect with people that understand my struggle and can potentially help me get through the challenges that every day bring.
