She moved to New York to pursue her dream of being a Club Kid and Fashion Designer. and attended Parsons and FIT. She has a unique relationship with the natural world and is extremely resourceful and able to find innovative ways to repurpose objects and natural elements; her mom describes it as “being artsy” and “different”. In her ascent to Club Kid fame, she inadvertently became an international designer creating 3D environmental projections with virtual imaging for events, museums and retail displays her clients included Cole Haan, Chanel, The NFL, and The Smithsonian Museum. in 2008 Kimberly decided it was time to get back to her roots of working with plants and flowers, but the un-engineered kind, in concrete clad, New York City. Thus Rose Red & Lavender came to be, a sweet, little plant and flower shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She fell in love with the personal aspects of events and weddings. Since then Rose Red & Lavender has moved and grown to be a premier Event Design and Production house located in Industry City. Her work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, The Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, Vogue Magazine, Carats and Cake, Style Me Pretty, and Biz Bash Magazine. When not scheming her next production, Kimberly enjoys spending time with her family: camping, hiking, and canoeing and having the occasional karaoke dance party.
