KAREN'S FASHION WORLD
Karen Falco graduated from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design. Her signature style is one of sophistication combined with a distinctive feminine silhouette.
When Karen was 12 and living in the Dominican republic, her amazing grandmother who was a seamstress, taught her how to make a pink cotton skirt (as she recalls). That day, Karen knew that fashion was going to be her life-passion and her work.
Later on, after moving to Italy and spending a decade near Milan, Karen acquired a sense for high-end fashion by being exposed to European craftsmanship and design. In 1999, she moved to the United States where she started working in the world of fashion and retail. During this period, she realized that American women, just like Italian women, love fashion but they also value comfort and practicality.
Karen founded KAREN FALCO in 2015, introducing her first Womenswear spring collection. Her style represents an edgy and contemporary design attitude, a classy functionality, and an excellent craftsmanship. Karen is obsessed with design details and sewing techniques and that is why she makes all her collection pieces in the Fashion District in Downtown Los Angeles, California. This allows Karen to oversee the quality and care of her garments’ production.
The KAREN FALCO woman is a woman who celebrates herself and her body on her own terms. She is not a follower, but someone who embraces her unique style.
