Katy Messersmith (Katydid) first arrived on the fashion scene in 2002 and has dominated the eCommerce scene ever since.
While volunteering at a women’s prenatal clinic in Africa, her life took a turn – literally when her luggage was lost and she was soon collaborating with local seamstresses to create her wardrobe. Those first designs reflected the vibrant, local culture but lit a creative and entrepreneurial spark in Katy, foreshadowing the bold Katydid creations to come.
Forever the risk-taker, Katy was determined to succeed, despite being self-taught in the worlds of business and fashion. Today, the company is a multi-million dollar business based in the heart of Dallas, TX and was recently named in the 2010 Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.
The Katydid Collection lifestyle brand includes children’s apparel, women’s and men’s clothing, and small accessories such as hats, belts and laptop cases. The youthful yet edgy styles, vibrant colors, and signature popular motifs mixed with unexpected patterns have become wardrobe staples for women of all ages. While clients are drawn to her products by the modern designs and creative embellishments, repeat customers return for the exceptional quality of the garments. Katy insists on the highest standards for her label, and the entire apparel line is made in the USA. The label is sold in more than 10,000 boutiques across the nation.
A firm believer in the power of giving back, Katy constantly looks for ways to make a difference in the community and empower emerging women. Dress for Success, Susan G. Komen, and Kidd’s Kids are a few of the charities Katydid Collection supports.
