Kay Unger was born and raised in Chicago, IL. She first discovered her passion for clothes by sewing scraps of fabric into dolls' dresses. She recieved a dregree in design from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City. After graduating college, she was an apprentice for Geoffrey Beene. Only a year later, she decided to take a chance and develop her own line. She designed clean line dress that stress class and femininity. She then developed The Gillian Group, which unfortunately failed in 1994. In 1999 she launched Kay Unger New York.
Kay Unger designs dresses for all ages and all body types. This is why my mother and I absolutely love her dresses! My mom actually just got re-married in one of her designs.
