KIYONNA Clothing Celebrates 20 Years of Style and Plus Size Fashion

Celebrating plus size women for 20 years


Anaheim, CA – October 17, 2016 – KIYONNA Clothing, Inc. of Anaheim, California is celebrating its 20th year of designing stylish women’s apparel which it caters exclusively to the plus size market.  Founded in 1996, KIYONNA has stayed true to its core values of designing something for its curvy customer a size 6 would want to wear, manufacturing ethically and 100% in the USA (right in Orange County), and doing so all while creating a work environment which emphasizes the gifts of each individual.

From its humble beginnings out of Founder Kim Khanbeigi’s apartment in Los Angeles, KIYONNA has evolved to become one of the premier boutique collections of plus size clothing on the market today.  The Spring 1997 Collection debuted in Vegas in 1996 and won the hearts of specialty boutique owners from all over the country.  With the evolution of ecommerce, the company launched www.kiyonna.com in 1999 where a devote customer base could now shop KIYONNA’S array of stylish cocktail dresses, signature lace frocks, chic separates, swim and bridal.  Today, the company partners with retailers like Amazon and Lane Bryant and premiers new styles weekly.

Since inception, KIYONNA has supported the local economy and its family of sewing contractors by committing 100% of all production to be made in the USA.  With factories in Westminster, Santa Ana, and Los Angeles, KIYONNA keeps a close eye on its production and quality.  Keeping production local also allows the company to bring new product to market each week and quickly respond to consumer demand.

KIYONNA recently documented its 20 year history with an online timeline which highlights the major milestones of success (https://www.kiyonna.com/plus-size-fashion-timeline.html).  Special moments include celebrities like Melissa McCarthy wearing one of KIYONNA’s signature lace dresses on the Tonight Show in 2010 and partnering with Sandy Hook Promise in 2015.  “I feel like 20 years has gone by in an instant, and in that instant we saw the birth of the internet and social media and our customers can connect with us like never before”, remarks Kim Khanbeigi.  “It’s an exciting time”.

KIYONNA has styled curvy women with its collection of contemporary plus-size dresses and separates since 1996. Offering styles in sizes 0x-5x, their fashions can be found online and in specialty plus-size clothing stores across the country.  KIYONNA strives to support its local community as 100% of the collection is designed and manufactured in the USA, specifically in Orange County, CA.  Known as more than just a fashion company, Kiyonna is involved in many charitable organizations and its team is passionate about using the success of its unique niche in making a difference.
