❖ Welcome!

    

Naven began with the creative minds of Twin designers Kym and Alexis McClay. Immersed in fashion from a young age while living in North America and Europe, their fashion forward thinking and influences have been rendered in their designs.

After graduating from Pepperdine University and FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in Los Angeles, Kym and Alexis gained valuable experience while working in the industry. Naven was born when the twins put their fashion ideals into a tangible form and introduced their women’s contemporary line in Los Angeles in the fall of 2007. Though Naven finds its roots in Los Angeles, the line embodies touches of European influences stemming from the twin’s background.

Naven plays on a contrast between a classic and sophisticated silhouette and a young, fun and flirty style. The line highlights the beauty of the female silhouette through flattering fits while portraying empowerment and energy through bold colors, fine fabrics, and an edgy take on the classic form.

Here’s the text below the Picture ;

Imagine this:  You’re a twin sister from California who’s sick of looking like everyone else - not just your equally blonde, doe-eyed sister, but also your friends, who show up everywhere in short, tight, black dresses.

You can either dye your hair black and become a goth girl, or

if you’re Kymberly and Alexis  - start a clothing line that’s anything but basic.


Their secret is simple shapes - bat-wing shirts, sheath dresses, bubble skirts - done in neon bursts of color, with a few unexpected prints thrown into the mix.  You might end up with a Wang-esque cutout dress in electric blue, or a nylon miniskirt in banana yellow - the same shape as your Little-Black-Whatever, but way more fun.

To demonstrate you shouldn’t be afraid of color, the girls hit the Santa Monica skate park, wearing their own designs.  Yes, they look like Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield from Sweet Valley High.  No, Elizabeth and Jessica would never rock these party-girl clothes. 

But maybe their ultimate Queen Bee, Lila Fowler, would…
