PAPERCITY PROMOTION What inspired you to make your vision a reality. Kris Cormier: Years ago, I started doing illustrations and live painting events as a side project while I worked a full-time job. As the demand for my services increased, I realized I had something that I could focus all of my energy and pursue. It's been one of the best decisions of my life, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Your proudest accomplishments as an entrepreneur. KC: Honestly, the relationships that I build with my clients and having them refer me to their friends. Almost half of my business comes from repeat/ loyal clients, and many of my new business comes from their referrals, which I'm extremely grateful for and proud of. What makes you excited to lead your business/brand in Dallas. KC: There's a lot of forward momentum, and it's so nice to live and work somewhere with positive growth. What you hope to accomplish in the future. KC: My main goals are to continue to grow KCA Design, especially ramping u p p r i v a t e s h o p p i n g f o r clients. Additionally, I'm focused on expanding the product mix for Domicile to really get that brand in growth mode. I underestimated how hard it would be to launch a new company while running an existing growing company, but I am up for the challenge! Next year, I hope to launch a third concept, which will be a unique AirBnB, chock-full of add- on experiences in East Texas. More to come on that. Local charities you're involved with. KC: I'm currently involved with DIFFA as a Style Council member. KCA Design also supports an assortment of charities nationwide with a portion of sales donated; additionally, we donate to local charities The Family Place, Patriot Paws, Cattle Baron's Ball, and Young Texans Against Cancer (YTAC). Your go-to Dallas restaurant. KC: A classic I will never tire of is Lucia. Your favorite Dallas cocktail. KC: The G&T at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. and Domicile DESIGNS KCA ESTABLISHED BY: KRIS CORMIER MISSION: The designer and artist turned her love of discovering and crafting one-of-design pieces into two in-demand services. In one fell swoop, Cormier will hunt down a vintage treasure for a client's home (Domicile) and hand-paint their favorite designer bag (KCA Designs). Kris Cormier KGA Designs 70
