Christiane King was born in the Cote d'Ivoire (French for the Ivory Coast) where she spent most of her childhood and college years. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in International Trade in the City of Abidjan and interning at the country's top Oil Refinery, she realized her passion lied somewhere else.
Christiane always showed a strong interest for Fashion. But growing up in a country where Fashion is highly underrated, she could not get her parents' support nor could she guarantee herself a successful career in Fashion.
Christiane then started a career in acting which took off very quickly. "I was on a quest... anything that could get me one step closer to the world of fashion was something I was willing to try".
Soon enough the opportunity to travel presented itself and Christiane left the Cote d'Ivoire for Paris and later relocated to Los Angeles. Experiencing both French and American cultures has really allowed her to broaden her fashion sense.
