SSIK: a juxtaposition of abstract art and alternative fashion with a focus on costume design and performance wear using art medium Smooth-On Silicone Rubber.
Kristina Kiss is a New York based designer and sole proprietor of SSIK Designs, a KUNT alt. label marked by innovative materials and unique application techniques. SSIK’s silicone drips, methods of manipulation & attention to detail are key signatures to the brand’s aesthetic.
Kiss used NYC's underground nightlife culture as a platform for her label’s success...hosting parties, posing for photos and hanging from swings wearing her designs. Slowly it moved to styling artists and commissioning designs for performers, the list goes on.
As a graduate of NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology with a BFA in Accessory Design, Kiss currently drips in NYC’s downtown East Village.
