Krista Norris Collection – Classic, Essential Scarves

Two Christmases ago, I was hunting for black scarves for my sister-in-law. She had been looking for weeks for a great yet simple black scarf to complement her new winter coat. Apparently, they don’t exist.

I was determined to gift her with one, but I new this would be quite the task, as I myself had been searching for the perfect black scarf for years. Finding the Holy Grail would have been easier, but I love a fashion challenge.

Well, on December 22nd, 2015, I found the Holy Grail of black scarves. While shopping at Viens Avec Moi Boutique, local scarf designer Krista Norris just happened to be there. I was thrilled to meet her, as her scarves were gorgeous and hugely popular. After hearing about my scarf dilemma, she offered to make a black scarf for my sister-in-law. Just like that – “Sure, Dom. I’ll make you one.” It was three days before Christmas, but she said it wasn’t a problem.

Two days later, I picked up the black scarf made from luxe Italian fabric and it was beautiful. Soft, cozy and beautiful draped, the Wingtip Scarf was perfect. As much as I love my gorgeous and stylish sister-in-law, I had a fleeting moment where I considered not giving it to her and keeping it for myself. Sorry, Tee! I presented her with the luxe gift and it was a smash hit. She still wears it proudly today.

I now own the Onyx Fringe Wingtip Scarf which features a semi-closed seam, allowing the scarf to fall longer on the torso. Thanks to its innovative design and inherent coziness, I reach for it almost daily as it elevates every outfit. I also own the Maverick Black Shawl Scarf and have my eye on the Corda Linen Striped Scarf which couldn’t be more perfect for spring (if spring ever gets here).

About Krista Norris

Krista has been designing and making clothing since she was a teen, but decided to focus on scarves thanks to the great response they received. Spending summers with her grandmother, a talented seamstress, Krista fell in love with textiles and design.

Her line of scarves was born after meeting with an industry professional who encouraged her to show her small collection to a local retailer. The rest is history.

Currently, her scarves are sold in over 30 boutiques across North America and the young designer loves working with independent, small boutiques in particular. As a small business owner, the support she receives from smaller boutiques is huge as they are both working towards the same goal: supporting independent designers.

Last year, Krista’s scarves were featured internationally thanks to the fabulous Canadian First Lady Mme. Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau gifting Sasha and Malia Obama with two Krista Norris Maverick scarves. How cool is that???

You can buy Krista’s cool, fresh designs on her website at www.kristanorris.com. Krista Norris Collection is also on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.

    I absolutely love scarves and this one looks super comfy! Krista was a doll to offer to make one for you is such a busy season. This confirms why I love small business owners so much.
