After gaining acclaim in the health and wellness space, Kenzie burnt it down to launch her lifelong passion: a clothing line focused on bringing lasting taste into fashion. BRÛLÉ is where life emerges from ashes. Kenzie previously managed a wellness social media account and created a podcast with more than 600,000 downloads. She also produced three health and wellness books and a superfood line of biodynamic coffee and cacao. However, in 2021, she disengaged from wellness and focused solely on fashion. McLean was inspired by Kenzie’s pivot and wanted to have her on the show to be an authentic example of how to support yourself through massive change.
