About & Give Back

K.Becker is slow fashion, small batch collection for sizes 2-24. Artsy with an edge, the clothing makes people look twice- stylish and crisp with a focus on the details. 

Kimberly Becker was trained as a Textile Designer at the Rhode Island School of Design. Upon graduation, she worked in the NYC garment district at Liz Claiborne and was submerged in the fashion industry.  She went on to train to become a professional stitcher at Ecole Lesage, a haute couture embroidery school in Paris.

The K. Becker collection combines her love of fine art and stitching with her background in textiles and fashion.

A bit about our values and our efforts to lower our carbon footprint...

  1. We sew all garments in New York’s Garment District. This greatly reduces the distance we are shipping garments before they reach the customer.
  2. We have our knitwear made in a factory in Brooklyn that uses 3D knitting machines which produces zero waste in the manufacturing.
  3. We will be offering a buy-back program for our garments. Send your K. Becker garments back, we will clean and mend them and then re-list at a discount on the website. Committing to a circular lifespan for our garments keeps them out of landfills.
  4. We gather all scraps created in the manufacturing of the clothes and send them to a fabric recycler.
  5. We manufacture in small batches which results in less garments ending up unsold and needing to be disposed of.


Kimberly is a fierce advocate of women's rights and, before starting K. Becker, was sewing a doll every day, by hand, out of recycled clothing.  The "Dolls for Change" raised over $12,000 which was all donated to DROTY Uganda (Dreams of Tropical Youth Uganda) to build bathroom units in rural schoolyards for young women.


Now with the founding of K. Becker Designs, 5% of all profits will be donated to continue to fund the construction of these bathrooms. 
When girls begin menstruation, they often drop out of high school due to the lack of private bathrooms.  DROTY Uganda is changing that one school at a time.  The facilities constructed at the Misoto Primary School in rural Kyotera, for example, are currently being utilized by 357 young women.  At Misoto, girls' hygiene has greatly improved and they are remaining to complete their educations.  In fact, families are moving to the village to allow their children to attend the school because of the work we have done.

Educating girls is a top priority for us here at K. Becker.
