'Black women deserve luxury, too'
CHICAGO (WLS) -- A luxury shoe designer, breaking barriers in the fashion world, is making Chicago Proud.
After learning to design footwear on her own, Kendall Reynolds set off to Milan, Italy to receive training at Ars Sutoria, the world's leading design school for footwear and bags.
The Chicago native eventually moved to Los Angeles, where she established her luxury shoe brand, Kendall Miles, in 2015. The Black-owned, woman-led company is rooted in the belief that Black women deserve luxury, too. Reynold's innovative designs are staples in the wardrobes of some of Hollywood's biggest celebrities, including Rihanna, Kehlani, Regina King, and Lupita N'yongo.
Reynolds visited ABC 7 to share the inspiring story of how she chased her dreams.
