There's no denying the dynamic force that is Karen Walker. A household name here in New Zealand, she has slowly but surely carved out a reputation internationally. No easy feat for a label based at the bottom of the world yet, when Madonna was photographed wearing a pair of KW trousers 17 years ago, we should have known this was one designer determined to go all the way.
Today, thanks to her regular showing at New York Fashion Week and with her over-the-top sunglasses, the Karen Walker brand is regularly spotted on the fashion and celebrity circuit. And today, it goes one step further - with the launch of the Karen Walker fragrance. Beauty editor Janetta Mackay steps inside Karen's world to explore the machinations of this motivated designer. It's an insightful and inspiring read.
