Oh, Hey There!
I’m assuming if you haven’t heard of us, you are wondering who the hell we are and where we came from? Well, let me tell you so there’s no confusion.
I’m Keri, the founder of Bryx + Kiki. This little shop of mine was named after my two babes, Bryxton and Kingston. Bryx is obviously short for his full name and Kiki was a nickname given to her by her brother Bryx. After being on leave from work after my kids were born, there was about a five year gap in between work periods which made it next to impossible to find a job. Trust me, I couldn’t even get an interview and I would say I have a pretty kick ass resume. Anyway’s I was super stressed out over it and had to really start doing some soul searching. The only thing I really knew in life was kids stuff and the possibility of owning a dayhome wasn’t really my jam. Oh, and kudos to mama’s who can do it, I just knew I wasn’t the right fit for that role. I finally decided that starting my own company was what I needed to do. Now, I don’t want you to think that I just drew this right out of a hat and decided to roll with it. This company was something I had thought about lots but never thought I could do it. For some reason, something just clicked with me that day and I said screw it, I’m just going to try and see if I can do it! I found Canadian designers that were willing to work with me, even though I didn’t have a website up and running yet! Thank god they put their trust in me or we wouldn’t be here today.
Fast forward to now, our shop is expanding! This has been a very scary and exciting moment. We aren’t expanding as in adding more children’s designers to our already amazing lineup, but expanding into a complete lifestyle brand. We’ve decided to stick to our Canadian roots and only work with Canadian brands because let’s face it, there are too many amazing companies in our own country not to collaborate with. We will carry everything from womenswear, jewellery, bath/body/skin, children’s wear and eventually menswear. Our dream is to continue to grow and add but for now we have selected a handful to get started.
All of this could never have been accomplished without all of you and your support. You guys have completely blown my mind and I will be forever grateful for this opportunity. I hope you enjoy the new Bryx + Kiki Lifestyle as much as we do.
