The designs are breathtaking--familiar, yet unique. From the slightly detached blazer to the ruffle details on blouses, skirts and coats, Karen Walker forces me to see glamour in a new and impartial way.

I love how she added a tough-girl leather jacket with the sophisticated cropped trousers, sheer, plaid blouse and red pumps. Instant effortless inspiration!

And just a few fun facts about Karen Walker:

  • She's from New Zealand.
  • Her designs are internationally known and loved, from California to Hong Kong
  • Her designs have been spotted in top fashion publications like Vogue, Elle, W and Nylon.
  • She is considered one of the most influential designers to emerge in the last 6 years.
  • Her label's recurring theme is "taking extremes and pushing them together--masculine and feminine, tailored and street, luxury and non-luxury, dark and super-cute." The epitome of effortlessness.
  • She also has a jewelry line, an eyewear line and a line of paints, sold worldwide.
  • She has recently done a diffusion line with Myer, named Hi There.
