Who is the "lady behind the hook?"


Kiara-Chan`te is a Haitian-American handcrafted crochet designer, eldest child of five, and born/raised in the city of Boston. She always had an interest in all types of art but clothing making and fashion designing was where she was the most passionate in. Ever since she was a small girl her mother would tell her stories of how she would play dress-up in her mom’s clothing and high heels and model down the hallways of their apartment.

All throughout middle and high school she would revamp her old clothing recreating new trendy designs. In the sixth grade she was taught how to knit and made tons of hats, scarves, and blankets. She knitted for a couple of years and then heard about another hook and yarn technique that allows one to create the same if not similar garments like she had done in the past with knitting but the only difference was this crochet technique required a one hook rather than two knitting needles. After watching a bunch of videos and reading books on how to fulfill this new technique even threw all the failed attempts on designs, yarn ball tangles or crochet hooks snapping or bending she mastered the art of crocheting.

 Kiara- Chan`te spent two years learning different patterns and tricks to help execute different designs she sketched out. She started off making basic tops and hat design. In April 2018- Gethookedwithki was launched as a brand. The roller-coaster of fun continues for this younger designer and she will only get better with years to come but she would like to known in her city as the girl who took a ball of yarn and a crochet hook and created wearable art; better known a crochet apparel.
