ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Cally Rieman is a New York-based women’s ready-to-wear designer who launched the KAL RIEMAN collection in 2010. From an early career in the financial industry, Cally observed the challenges of dressing powerfully and maintaining one’s femininity in professional environments limited to the “skirted suit.”
Her passion for studying the historical influences of formal menswear on women’s clothing led to pursuing an education in fashion design at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After several years apprenticing with global fashion houses, Cally applied her experience with men’s and women’s wear to bring KAL RIEMAN to life. A self-professed grown-up tomboy, Cally approaches her collections as an exploration of the strong, modern woman.
