Founder and head designer of GOLDSHEEP Clothing
Founder and head designer of GOLDSHEEP Clothing, Keri Wilson, began her career in fashion with the hopes of bringing bright energy and individuality to the routine athleisure wear that she was surrounded by.
Growing up in Newport Beach, California where everything is picture perfect, Wilson never felt like she fit in with the rest. She decided to take this urge to blend in and begin her own path to success. After studying at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, Keri moved to New York to pursue a career in fashion. It was here that Keri drew her inspiration for photography on leggings after seeing thousands of women walking the NY streets wearing basic black leggings that contrasted starkly against the vibrant street art scene in the city. Keri began to wonder if it was possible to combine the two.
Leggings may be a practical necessity, but that didn’t mean they had to be boring! Inspired by her Cali upbringing, she copied a photograph of the SoCal sunset onto fabric and hand-sewed her first pair of leggings in her NY apartment. It was then that GOLDSHEEP was born and the name to her was simple…she always knew she was way too vibrant and sparkly to be a black sheep, so being a GOLDSHEEP was way more fitting!
Keri now runs GOLDSHEEP Clothing out of her OC warehouse where all design and manufacturing work is done in-house and every piece is produced as it is ordered. Filled with graphic pop culture prints, beautiful photography and distinctive designs, Wilson appeals to her fans with collections that are equal parts cool athleisure wear, quirky must-have collectibles and impressive lifestyle clothing.
Wilson wants people to use their golden gift to shine light and give back to others in any way they can. The message that she wishes to spread is that a GOLDSHEEP is guided by their light, inspiring others to be their best self, and always seeking the chance to stand out. Keri is the ultimate GOLDSHEEP, breaking the mold of what society says is the norm and attracting everyone around her with her shining individuality!
