We had the good fortune of connecting with Krystle Krueger and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Krystle, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
I define success as giving the middle finger to all those who never believed in me, and there are quite a few. It’s not their fault, I guess. I have been known to fail a lot but, not at anything I really wanted and only in their eyes, not mine. I did things my way. I already know I can do anything I put my mind to. Now, I just want others to see the same in me as my husband, daughter and myself see in me, greatness. I define success as proving myself great.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I create art, I always have. So now I’m creating art with children’s clothing. What makes me different is that I also include hands on activities with the garments such as a recipe card that is made specially for kids and their parents to make together. I specifically made these clothes to be easy to put on and allows children to dress themselves with buttons or openings in the front for self independence. I’m so excited to be launching in June! I’m ‘contributing my verse’ to society and leaving my mark on this world. I want to make a difference, I want to invoke change. I want to make a better world for my daughter to live in. This is how I am doing that. So join me and “Explore the World through Fashion”.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love Downtown Los Angeles. I used to live nearby and I would walk to Downtown every day. My favorite place is the pedways. Not many people know about these but they are walkways that connect some of the buildings like the Westin Bonaventure. You can find some amazing spots with these. I even picked the spot where I got married following these one day. It’s like traveling down the rabbit hole not knowing where you will end up. One time I ended up in this apartment complex with the most beautiful roses and the next I travelled to and underground skate spot. You never know where you will end up and that is what I love about the pedways.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My husband and daughter. They support everything I do. They are my inspiration, my heart and the very thing that keeps me driving for a better future.
