About Kathleen Gildred
Kathleen has spent most of her adult life doing whatever she thought would make the most significant difference in creating a better world. For over twenty-five years, whenever she was in between projects, she would ask herself, “What is the most important thing in the world that needs to be done that no one else is doing?”
Kathleen began her mission of helping to create a better world in the 1970’s, with her metaphysical bookstore next to theInn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga Canyon, Southern California. Ten years and several projects later, she coordinated the What’s Working in the World program of the First Earth Run, working out of the United Nations. A couple years after that, she created the first pamphlet of what the individual can do for the environment, the Personal Action Guide for the United Nations Environment Programme through Friends of the United Nations. She went on to working for the U.S. Department of Defense, helping to connect them with the environmental community for their Defense and Environment Initiative. Her work on the environment culminated with her organization, the Southern California Council on Environment and Development (SCCED). SCCED grew out of the Earth Summit, to demonstrate that sustainable policies could work for the environment and the economy. The organization put on close to fifty conferences and forums, and had task forces in transportation, water, waste, and open space. SCCED educated the general public and city government personnel, and were told several times that they put on the most educational events to help city governments improve on their programs.
In January of 2001, having had a change of fortune due to the stock market, Kathleen decided to re-invent herself. She made a long list of everything she might enjoy doing, and then arranged the list by what she thought she would enjoy the most. Beautiful women’s clothing topped the list. She had always loved colorful, comfortable, feminine clothing. Having grown up in Beverly Hills, with a very well dressed mother and grandmothers (one of whom was a buyer of better sportswear for department stores, and was told that no one had an eye for quality like she had) – getting into the clothing business was a natural for her. Kathleen found some cut velvet coats that she loved, and sold them one weekend at a friend’s home. It went so well that she got some more pieces and sold them at her house every weekend for the next few months, then started taking them on the road, starting with the Health and Harmony Music and Arts Festival in Northern California.
For a year and a half, Kathleen was the director of SCCED during the week, and oversaw the GoddessWear collection on weekends. Finally, it seemed that SCCED had put on all the conferences and forums that her steering committee felt were needed at that time. So Kathleen shifted to doing GoddessWear as a full time business.
Kathleen truly loves every part of her work – buying the clothes, going to wonderful events, meeting new friends and seeing old ones in all the great places she gets to visit, and especially helping to bring out the beauty in women with adornments that make them look and feel really special.
