NiK Kacy draws their own lines. This L.A.-based genderqueer shoe designer/entrepreneur refuses to be confined by traditional societal boundaries and definitions – or limited by shoes that don’t fit. After searching for many years for well-made, masculine shoes to fit their female-born feet, they created the world’s first footwear label specifically designed to sever the gender binary within the fashion industry. A transplant from New York, NiK relocated to LA to study at Pepperdine University, where they earned both a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and in Advertising. After spending time in Japan and Singapore, NiK decided to settle back in L.A. and established a career in advertising. In 2013, in pursuit of their dream, NiK left the comfort and security of their job at Google and dedicated their time to creating stylish, gender equal shoes that will change the way individuals think about fashion and style. When NiK is not traveling to craft or promote their brand, NiK is passionate about LGBTQ+, human and equal rights, photography, painting, animal rescue, the culinary arts, motorcycles, spending quality time with friends and family. Most recently, NiK Kacy created the first LGBTQ+ -focused Fashion Week in Los Angeles called Equality Fashion Week, which featured queer POC designers and over 100 queer, trans, non-binary models. NiK is a Board Member of the LA Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, part of the Trans Inclusion Task Force for the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, and on the Advisory Board of Gendrfwd. They are also a member of the Los Angeles Women's Network, was on the Committee for the Los Angeles LGBT Center's An Evening with Women for 8 consecutive years, and currently on the Committee for LA Pride’s Fem(me) Fueling the Female Force Pride Event.
