Name: Lilly Kline
CollegeFashionista: Can you tell me a little bit about your brand Saint & Noble and why you started it?
Lilly Kline: In the store, I would always see students come in and want conservative clothes for interviews and work. In a college town, it’s hard to find a fitted button-down shirt, some dress slacks and a nice dress to wear for an interview. My long term goal was to have a line that was affordable and more on the conservative side that caters to college students, but was still my own style as well.
CF: How would you describe the style of Saint & Noble?
LK: Conservative, clean lines and simple pieces that never go out of style.
CF: Where did you find inspiration for the Saint & Noble collection?
LK: I have always loved timeless pieces so I wanted to do something classic and professional but more affordable for students.
CF: What makes Saint & Noble unique?
LK: Saint & Noble looks expensive enough to even be sold in major department stores, but the price is very affordable for college students’ style.
