Sister Act

Daniel Ortiz

FASHIONABLE SISTERS and online retailers Kailey and Kaygan Tissue quietly opened the doors this summer in Rice Village to their first permanent brick-and-mortar location of their online Kissue fashion boutique.


Located on Amherst Road, next door to popular menswear shop The Classroom, the 1,800 square foot, minimally designed black-and-white space is actually their second location, as the girls experimented with a temporary setup at Memorial City six months prior to opening in the more central Houston locale. “We learned so much more about the type of customer our merchandise appeals to because we worked at the store all day, every day.” Kailey and Kaygan opened their online shop three years ago while Kaygan was still in college at Texas Christian University and Kailey was working in New York City for such fashion designers as Vivienne Tam and Rag & Bone.

Their long-term vision? To launch their own Kissue fashion collection. But until then they stock a selection of affordable fashion and accessory brands from New York and Los Angeles, both in stores and online. Their top sellers include fashion designs by Renamed, Mono B, and Lumiere, plus Australian sunglasses brand Quay, and jewelry line Wrapped by Sav. 2532 Amherst Road, 713.899.3102; kissuetx.com

According to an article on Vogue.com, Scott's Cactus Jack Foundation has partnered with Parsons and the nonprofit My Brother's Keeper to deliver online fashion-design courses and a "web-based incubator for emerging talent" to Houston high schoolers.
