Kimberly McGlonn, Ph.D.
Founder & CEO
Director of Design & Production
I've been working as a seamstress & designer for over 10 years. My passion for fashion design first emerged when I was a young girl and that love led me into the production of one-of-a-kind, couture evening gowns. As a production seamstress, sample maker, and patternmaker, I really love the satisfaction our customers experience when they see the quality of our team's work. I'm absolutely thrilled when they recognize the personal care we put into each and every one of our garments.
Graphic Design Leader
Hi everyone! I'm a graduate of Drexel University with a major in Graphic Design and a minor in Fine Art. My interest in fashion was sparked when I began to view clothing as “wearable art” and then grew when I learned about the importance of sustainability in the industry. I am so excited to use design as a platform to spread positivity and awareness around the things I'm incredibly passionate about, especially the mission behind Grant Blvd. Above all, I hope that my visual designs will bring about the same sense of encouragement and empowerment that the clothing of Grant Blvd provides to its wearers.
Director of Finance
I'm energized by Grant Blvd's mission of prioritizing sustainability and social justice through fashion and community engagement. The fast fashion industry is very harmful to its workers and our planet, and I am passionate about working to replace fast fashion with ethical, sustainable business practices that produce high-quality, stylish garments. In college, I studied both math and art, and I have always incorporated both in my life. Professionally, I've been working in accounting and finance for ten years, in sectors spanning primary healthcare, non-profit, and retail. More recently I've become an avid sewist, and find so much value in making my own clothes, and anything else I can make myself.
Director of Impact
A Philadelphia-based designer with over 15 years of corporate experience as both a merchant and a designer, Quinn has been teaching sustainable fashion design since 2018 at Drexel University and the University of Delaware. Her knowledge of industry and her understanding of intersectional approaches to design come together in the courses she teaches, including global issues and responsible practice in design, sustainable sportswear, textile science and material innovation in accessories.
