It’s October again, and although we’re still in the fight against breast cancer, immediate help is on the way. This year, KIYONNA joins the fight by supporting the Orange County-based non-profit, Breast Cancer Angels, with direct donations to cancer patients.
50% of Retail Sales to Breast Cancer Angels in October
Kiyonna will donate 50% of retail sales on the Bohemian Crochet Bellini in Blushing Pink. Plus, on Saturday, October 10th, we are hosting an open house fundraiser at The Showroom (our in-house boutique), at our headquarters in Anaheim. Besides the fabulous fashion and delicious sips and snacks being offered, 50% of the day’s retail sales on Kiyonna apparel will be donated to Breast Cancer Angels. Save the date for the Pink Positive for Breast Cancer Awareness event!
Exude sassy confidence with a statement piece that feels like a second skin from Kiyonna’s collection of glamorous plus size cocktail dresses and party dresses. When she makes her entrance bedecked in one of Kiyonna’s sophisticated dresses for sizes ten and up their jaws will do more than drop, they’ll start chattering about her transformation into a fashion goddess. At Kiyonna, their specialty is knowing exactly how to flatter her full figure with stylish staples that hug her curves and flaunt her assets. From elegant maxi dresses to feminine lace wraps, they’ve designed an array of eye-catching pieces to suit every formal or last-minute occasion for the summer and fall seasons.
Bring back the art of the voluptuous vixen with the Winona Hi-Lo Wrap Dress. This fully functional piece features a plunging neckline, beautifully draped skirt that hits below her knees in front, and a gracefully dipping back hem that reaches low to mid calf. A long sash ties at the waist emphasizing an hourglass figure and creating a flattering focal point.
Sweet enough for a summer fling and stylish enough for all of the season’s must attend events, the Party Patio Maxi Dress is the perfect plus size cocktail dress for any occasion. Kimono style sleeves add subtle drama, modern horizontal and vertical stripes create a slimming effect, and the breathable soft jersey fabric swathes her in comfort all day long.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. Surprisingly, every 9 seconds in the United States a woman is assaulted or beaten and 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.
Plus-sized clothing retailer Kiyonna Clothing, Inc. does not want victims of such heinous crimes to suffer any more than they already have. Therefore, Kiyonna has partnered with Reveal NYC to help celebrate the beauty and dignity of women survivors of domestic violence in their annual Valentine’s Day Makeover Event. According to the President and Passionate Founder of Kiyonna, Kim Khanbeigi, “We’re in the business of making women feel amazing. What better way to do this than by partnering with Reveal for this event”.
Catherine Ngai, Reveal NYC president, had the following words regarding the Reveal event and Kiyonna’s partnership:
“For the last eight years, Reveal NYC has worked with prominent shelters across New York City to hold an annual Valentine’s Day Makeover Event. Thanks to generous donations from corporate sponsors, including Kiyonna, we are able to celebrate and restore the beauty and dignity of women healing from domestic violence by providing full makeovers and new wardrobes during the event. Not only do we see external makeovers, but these makeovers eventually lead to beautiful internal transformations.”
On January 14th, 2013, the Sandy Hook Promise was launched just one month after the shocking and tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary that devastated the country. Despite Washington’s inaction in its first year of existence, the foundation has found much success in local communities throughout the nation.
In order to honor the gains made over the last year as well as highlight the need to do more, plus-sized clothing retailer Kiyonna™ Clothing, Inc. has donated $26,000 to further the promise to those 26 lost souls of Sandy Hook Elementary. In a company letter released over the holidays, the President and Passionate Founder of Kiyonna™, Kim Khanbeigi, noted:
“I have always believed that to be a successful sustainable business, we must first take care of our future, we need to appreciate the present and provide an amazing place to work and grow, and if we are fortunate to achieve the first two, we need to act on the privilege to give back to the community. Although we are on opposite sides of the country, we must consider the Newtown community our neighbors. Being able to put money behind something you believe in is truly a privilege and is one of the reasons I love this business.”
