More comfortable than a celebrity on the red carpet, the designs by KD Dance make getting dressed to practice your dance, yoga or Pilates moves a coveted and long-overdue kind of chic. That is what happens when two professional dancers channel their energy into design. And its what attracts style hunters for Hollywood and fashion magazines like German Vogue to KD Dance. Jennifer Lopez knows. Rent her 2004 movie, Shall We Dance. Youwill see. The designs made by KD Dance do not cling to your body. Your body clings to them. The designs first created in 1980 by Tricia Kaye and David Lee in the San Francisco Bay Area where the two danced professionally, used an approach no one had ever seen before. The inventive knit they came up with was the beginning of a new kind of comfortable: thin, soft, sweater shorts, tops and bodysuits that breathe and hug the body in a way no other clothing ever could. As dancers, creating beautiful silhouettes with the body came naturally. KD Dance designs honor every inch of that aesthetic. The first designs were created for dancers. But that changed when Lee danced for the Oakland Ballet. He and fellow dancer, Rodney Yee, took their first yoga class. The experience was so profound for both of them, Lee began creating designs with yoga in mind, too. Now based in New York, along with a retail store in NoHo that opened in 1996, the line remains its own genre that do not look or feel like anything else out there.
