We had a little chat with Sarah Law, the brains behind Kara about the brand, New York and the SS15 collection! x
WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND THE KARA NAME? AND WHAT DREW YOU TO DESIGNING BAGS?
The name KARA comes from the Japanese word Karaoke which means 'Empty Orchestra". I love the idea of open space to create and express yourself. Bags are interesting because they are functional as well as fashion. Some things are very straight forward, utilitarian while others have no purpose at all.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING A BOUTIQUE BRAND BASED IN NEW YORK?
New York is an incredible city to be a creative person and entrepreneur. The community, of people making things for a living, is probably my favourite part.
