About ckfcreate by Constance,
Constance Kimble Franklin
Constance is the founder of ckfcreate by Constance, a designer, fashion stylist and Certified Image Consultant trained at the London Image Institute and Christian Image Consultant by Fashion Meets Faith – Christian Speaker and Author Shari Braendel.
As a native of Atlanta, Georgia and daughter of a professional seamstress, Constance was born into a world of fashion. Taught at an early age the skills of sewing, Mrs. Franklin found herself exposed to the art of creativity.
To boost her creative drive, as a youngster, Constance would engage in craft projects and rearranging the décor of her childhood bedroom, on a whim. Voted “Best Dressed” in high school, she was sold on the art of fashion and design and concluded she would pursue a career in Fashion Design.
As a college student, however, Constance was intrigued with courses in Computer Programming and grew excited with the expansive possibilities in technology. Constance found another avenue for creativity by developing and producing programs and graphical interfaces for major computer industries.
Mrs. Franklin, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Technology Management with over 30 years experience as a Computer Programmer/Analyst in the corporate and educational field. In addition, Mrs. Franklin has an Associate Degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing where she has experience in Visual Merchandising for a major boutique as well as Design / Interior and Event Decor contributions.
Mrs. Franklin has worked on a number of design, interior decor and event projects: producing Fashion Shows, Women Empowerment Sessions, Class Reunions, retirement functions, school dances, Father/Daughter church balls, children clothing and more. Recently Constance showcased her collection “After I Do” at Christian Fashion Week in Tampa Fl. which was featured in the New York Times. In addition she designed a JR teen Fashion Stylist bag for the Reveal Your Dignity program which was featured on ABC news.com.
Mrs. Franklin is passionate about encouraging and empowering women to walk in confidence, by embracing the beauty God created them to embody. Her mission is to simply transform the appearance of women by bringing an awareness to dressing with morals and values. These two factors are key in defining your unique style and wearing beauty and confidence. She longs to bring dressing “classy” back in style and to adorn ladies in fashion forward apparel that reflect the love of Christ from the inside out.
As a wife and mother of two adult children, Mrs. Franklin now considers this the season for making entrance into phase two of her life’s journey and her desire to rebirth Fashion and Design has resurfaced. That dream became reality with the launching of ckfcreate by Constance, an Image Consultant + Style + Design business.
Mrs. Franklin has worked with music producers, designing, styling and providing personal shopping for social events and functions. Constance is creative and has a keen eye for details and style, producing fashion forward looks for clients.
