Terry Kiskaddon knew she wanted to become a fashion designer by the time she was 10.
One Size Does Not Fit All... Terry started out making clothes for women sizes 6-12, however that changed when she met her future partner, John, and his mother, Lillian, who convinced them to design some clothing for women like Lillian who are larger than a size 12. The Harper Greer line was sold wholesale to specialty and hi-end department stores throughout the nation for five years. Terry opened her first retail store in the SoMa district of San Francisco in 1989, and opened a second retail store in Berkeley in 2003.
Style and Beauty for the Full-Figured... Terry believes that any style can be made for plus size women as long as the piece is properly fit. How does a new design become reality? The first samples are cut in a size 16, tried on her fit models, and viewed with a critical eye before putting them into production.
Terry's Business Philosophy: To make clothes with the best fabrics, style and fit possible and have fun doing it!
