Collaborations

Read about Karen's collaborations with other British designers - whether it be getting together for a London exhibition, creating hats using innovative textiles, or applying her millinery skills to work on creative lampshade designs.

Material Consequences

A dynamic group show, held during London Design Festival 2015. Hosted by Craft Central Gallery in the heart of the Clerkenwell Design Quarter, Karen was one of seven designers presenting a diverse range of art, objects and accessories.

 


 

Dashing Tweeds

Making waves in the world of tailoring, Dashing Tweeds has been a long-standing partner, with their wonderfully modern and vibrant tweed designs providing the perfect fabric for Karen's iconic Windswept Flat Cap, and more recently for Cavendish, a fedora style hat. 

 

 


Aragonite

Another exciting collaboration is with talented textile designer Arantza Vilas' brand Pinaki Editions, using their 'Aragonite' digital print for selected hat designs, alongside Pinaki's own range of accessories. Find out more about the Aragonite Collection here
