Kaiya Eve is a line of pettiskirts made in sizes from infant to junior in an array of styles reminiscent of a time when little girls were dressed in petticoats and pantaloons. Couture Designer, Kandi Lightner, renamed this original vintage line "pettiskirts" and they are now in demand all over the world.

About the designer:

Kaiya Eve made its mark in 2002 when Los Angeles based designer, Kandi Lightner, created a one-of-a-kind vintage line of petticoats. Kandi traveled the nation in search of the most beautiful vintage petticoats. In the beginning, she had an exclusive deal with Fred Segal in Santa Monica, California and began to accumulate quite the celeb Mom following.

It was there that little starlet, Dakota Fanning, bought one and wore it to the 2003 Teen Choice Awards. After her photo appeared in People Magazine, Kandi received hundreds of orders from girls across the nation.

As every designer knows, it can sometimes be a struggle. Kandi began having difficulties locating large quantities of vintage petticoats and came up with the idea of a vintage reproduction line. Thus, the pettiskirt trend began. Kandi transformed the old style petticoat into something new and was the very first to call them a "pettiskirt".

Kaiya Eve pettiskirt
Just because I'm 28 doesn't mean I don't still love the vestiges of a girly girlhood - including the color pink, headbands, and all things frilly & ruffled.  I also love 50s style dressing and I used to borrow the ruffled petticoats from Betsey Johnson to wear for photoshoots (or just for fun).  Although I would have happily bought them, unfortunately they were just showroom samples.  So when I spotted a bright red pettiskirt on Zappos.com while browsing for a Valentine's day …
