You may not be aware of this, but Karen is a proud alumna of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. She graduated from the downtown LA school in 1976 after majoring in fashion design. A little fun fact? While in school, she was awarded the prestigious Peacock Award for excellence in fashion design. Pretty cool!
Karen sat down recently to chat with FIDM when they asked for an update of what she’s been up to in the past year. Check out her profile from the Spring 2011 of FIDM’s alumni magazine, “Dialogues,” to find out what she told them!
