Born in London, Karen studied at the London College of Fashion and on leaving, opened her own boutiques. Whilst running the business Karen also honed her styling talents at catwalk shows for the shopping centre where one of her boutiques was located. A chance meeting in 1991 with a T.V presenter at a fashion event opened doors to a career in the T.V industry and Karen enjoyed years of success as a fashion stylist and researcher on various programmes, for both the BBC and ITV. She styled celebrities, models and viewers for “before and after” makeovers. Karen’s love of styling continued to blossom and her passion for fashion took her to Spain where she styled for brochures and photo shoots. Making a life for herself on the the Mediterranean, she continued to build her name as a stylist as well as writing for various glossy magazines. She now works as a Image Consultant and Personal Shopper.
