Who is Karen and why do we love her?
Alexandra Knight met Karen in her NYC days at Vanity Fair. Karen is one of the coolest girls around, has an infectious laugh and can multi-task like nobody knows. Smart, sassy & stylish! She has a Masters in American & English Literature and she has worked for Annie for over 14 years and travels around the world overseeing her shoots. She pitches global advertising concepts to clients, casts celebrities and athletes, negotiates the contracts and produces the campaigns. So what does a girl with a demanding job like this do....She starts a surf wear company with her best friend!
Karen and her partner Jill Demling, Entertainment Editor @ Vogue Magazine, met on a photo shoot over 10 years ago. While shopping for surf clothing for a surf camp in Costa Rica the girls noticed that there was a void in the market and nothing met their needs of fit, function and fashion. So if you cannot find it - make it! The girls created Pret-a-Surf, a surf line that is for the woman who is active and wants to look good while playing and competing. Ready to surf and ready to wear. Unbelievable right? We love Karen and are pretty sure you will too!
