Kimberly Anderson, creator and executive producer of "Kim's Closet," brings her dream to life by helping a worthy Northern Kentucky family get their style back.
The lucky subject, Jackie Alexander is treated to a complete lifestyle makeover, including professional hair, make-up, jewelry by Silpada, head-to-toe attire by Dillards all choreographed and executed by the Show Host and Stylist, Kimberly Anderson.
Alexander, wife and mother of five, is a special education director whose youngest child has Down Syndrome. At the "Kim's Closet Casting Call," Jackie set herself apart from the crowds of people vying to be the subject of the show by telling the producers "My house, my organization, style and spark have all fallen to the wayside. I only see shadows and glimpses of the woman I once was less than a decade ago." She went on to say "I need my confidence. I need my style. I need to find me again."
The fashion segments will be filmed at multiple locations and businesses. Anderson, a proud Mid-westerner, felt strongly about creating a cast of professionals featuring as many local business as possible. The production crew will be making stops in Oakley, Northern Kentucky and downtown Cincinnati.
The design portion of the show is largely taking place on site in Hebron as The Handyman Connection installs the room designed by local lifestyle studio HighStreet. The room chosen for transformation in Alexander's home will feature world class products and services, anchored by a custom, room-wrapping built-in donated by California Closets, and is meant to offer the family a fresh start.
"I think the show is timely. It is exciting to see our work resonate with so many people. We knew we were onto something at the casting call. We heard story after story that made a compelling argument for positive change.” Anderson ends with, “I wanted to help them all."
