Buckley K began with a love for travel and a big idea: while traveling and visiting family living in Cairo we imagined the go-to pieces we wished we had in our suitcases…staples we could wear anywhere and everywhere. We quit our day jobs and launched Buckley K to bring them to life.
Buckley K is a family business, a collaboration between two sisters – Anne Kennedy Dotson and Sarah Kennedy. It is the realization of a dream we have long shared to start a business together based on our love for adventure, our passion for design and our experiences traveling throughout the United States and abroad.
We began our adventures as kids, when our Air Force family moved from the Midwest to the Phillipines. Since then, we have enjoyed the great fortune of living and traveling in fascinating and often unexpected places. We are not sure when or where but we fell in love with wandering the world.
No matter the destination – a cozy café in Paris, an idyllic beach in Australia, or a desert oasis in the Middle East – we have been inspired by and curious about local style and fashion.

Snap2Live belts were designed to raise awareness on a global phenomenon: Road Crashes. Upon hearing that, “road crashes are the leading cause of death among youth,” Snap2Live founder, Ernesto Arguello felt compelled to do something. In an effort to support the United Nations decade of action for Road Safety, Snap2Live pledges 70% of the profits to the Road Safety Fund and to create safe, affordable communities in developing countries. Utilizing his background as both an entrepreneur and philanthropist, Ernesto is fashionably bringing attention to the fact that over a million people are dying every year on the world’s road and that together, we can do something about it.
