A little bit of mystery is always a good thing.

A mysterious woman is not here to impress you, she knows her worth.

She is the type of woman, who exudes confidence and uses fashion to express her personal style. It doesn’t really matter what she is wearing, her essence shows up! She doesn’t feel the need to shout out her greatness, you will see it in her actions and feel it in her presence. 

Kasia, is one of these women.

Kasia Kay is an art curator, dealer, art creator and collector.

This all around beauty, is precise, clear about her wants and desires, and a woman who believes in self preservation and the preservations of others.

Throughout her many accomplishments, she has always taken time away from herself to work on projects dear to her heart concerning the well-being of children and women in developing countries.

She is the owner of Kasia Kay Art Projects (KKAP) and Fine Art Wallpapers (FAW), businesses representing international contemporary artists, and a line of unique and beautiful wallpaper designs created and designed by artists and fashion designers.

When Kasia is not championing and supporting other artists, she sharpens her amazing creative skills as the ultimate sculptress, producing beautiful textured sculptures paying homage to some of her favorite artists like Maya Angelou and Jean Michel Basquiat.

Kasia wears our lambskin leather mock neck dress in olive.

From April 9th through May 2018, get to know some beautiful and inspirational women as we launch and reveal the stunning portraits shot by photographer Emmanuel André for our new women's online platform for disruptive women of style, "Mimi + Me". 

Three years ago, we met photographer by night, Emmanuel André and immediately joined forces to create a series of photographs celebrating the Mimi Plange woman. 
Mimi + Me was born.
-We invited a group of amazing women to a photo studio in NYC, but did not tell them why
-We presented each of them our entire collection and let them choose which outfit they wanted to wear for their photoshoot
-We provided hair and makeup to compliment their look
-We asked them all a few fun questions

 

What sound or noise do you love?

Kasia:  The sound that I love is Tibetan Monks chanting

What sound or noise do you hate?

Kasia:  The sound that I really hate is hearing gunshots

Which talent would you most like to have?

Kasia:  I would love to be a sculptor

In what occasion do you lie?

Kasia:  I very rarely lie, and only when I feel I need to save a situation for the better

If heaven exists, what would you like God to say when you arrived at the gate?

Kasia: I would like him to say that I did fucking awesome on this earth

Which living person do you most admire?

Kasia: It would be my mother

Thank you so much Kasia, for sharing your beauty with us!
