About us

Founded by Mariela Torres, Killem With Chic is a clever clothing line, but remains classic and chic. The name came after seeing this quote, "CHIC - creating happiness inspiring confidence" She thought "That's the sort of movement I'd like to create" All clothes are curated and designed in both her hometown San Diego and where she lives now, Los Angeles.



Killem With Chic was founded by Mariela in her hometown of San Diego after a ten year long relationship ended, quitting her corporate job as a lease manger inside Bloomingdales, and the passing of her mother. She was presented with many challenges, which ultimately inspired her to follow her dream. She hopes to inspire other women to live their lives brave and free, and to pursue their passion with a sense of confidence and purpose. Style and originality are what defines her from head to toe everyday and drives this young entrepreneur to produce a uniquely witty twist on tees.
