Having studied Fashion & Textiles in Brighton, Karen worked between London and Brighton as a designer for the next two decades, specialising in couture patternmaking and bespoke womenswear. She then took on a different challenge, starting a successful independent gallery amongst the bustling Brighton art scene, where she curated jewellery, glass, ceramics, sculpture and wall art. This led her to be recognised by the British Crafts Council.
Karen is excited to get back to her fashion roots. Her myriad experience perfectly lends itself to the world of Belle Brummell, fusing her technical knowledge, appreciation of decorative objects and passion for customer experience.
