"Now, a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a SELLER OF PURPLE from the city of Thyatira, who worshipped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul." Acts 16:14
Purple is BLACK OWNED and was founded by Christopher and Kandy Kyriacou. They are Christians.
From an early age, Kandy had a distinctive sense of style. She wanted to wear the color purple with everything. In 2008, she enrolled in the Fashion Design Program at a local college. She endured many challenges while in school. However, she graduated in 2010 with honors receiving an AA Degree and certificate in Apparel Design and Merchandizing. PURPLE was birthed out of this experience.
