Karen combines her love and knowledge of colours and textiles when designing Bespoke Clothing for her clients in a synergistic process of pure creativity and flair. Her unique approach when working with her clients embraces their individuality and personality which when fused with the use of wonderful, often exotic fabrics, successfully leads to the creation of a unique garment for her client from the first meeting to the Final Fitting.

Karen also offers fashion workshops, such as pattern cutting and creative styling based at her "Old Smithy Studio" in Kilmelford, Argyll.
