The local designer that can do no wrong. She could recreate neon spandex and still reign queen of fashion week. Her stuff is featured annually in New York Fashion Week, which is a testament to the quality of her designs. Always on trend with a quirk or two thrown in, her fashion and jewellery are worn nationwide. More recently we can thank her for the long-awaited arrival of Topshop to our shores.

Her flagship store in Newmarket has a selection of international designer clothing hand-picked by Karen herself, including Hunter boots and a range of fragrances. But it is her eyewear that has gained the most traction overseas, including Hollywood where celebs seem to be sporting KW to protect their peepers and hide from the paps.
