With an eye for style and a mind for numbers,
Kelly Claman, President & CEO of Kelly Claman Company (KCC), is
quickly becoming one of Canada's rising forces in the fashion business.
With over ten years of experience in brand management, product
development, styling, international business, and public relations she
has an unique in-depth and well-rounded view of the industry.
Having grown up in fashion showrooms, a young Kelly would often be found alone, contently flipping through the pages of the likes of VOGUE, absorbing everything, while her peers were playing in the schoolyard. During her teen years, Kelly continued her exploration of the fashion industry as well as her interest in accounting and finance through placements; including a stage with one of Montreal's top accounting firms, where she acquired many of the invaluable skills she still uses to run her business today.
As a young adult, Kelly began working from the ground up at a Montreal-based fashion distribution firm. During this time, Kelly's love of fashion as well as her entrepreneurial mindset allowed her to increase the firm's sales exponentially and helped position the firm to become one of Canada's biggest distributorships at the time. Kelly went on to launch and represent several high-profile clothing and accessory brands in the Canadian market including Vince, Juicy Couture, Majestic and Ugg Australia, laying down the foundation for their businesses which are still in place today.
a successful young entrepreneur and head of the KCC, she strives to
build the brands she currently represents; which include Kara Ross
handbags and jewellery, and women's wear brands Kova & T, Love
Zooey, and Holy Tee.
Kelly maintains industry-wide relationships and regularly attends the shows across North America. She lives in Toronto's King West district with her goldendoodle, close to her tight-knit family.
