Famous fashion blog Fashionista asked Kara about her style vision, and she answered as follows: “If there’s one message that I hope to get across to people it’s that avant garde is not necessarily scary or weird or out there, it’s different. If I can push people to take a little bit of a risk and try something different, if it doesn’t work out for you, you can take it off at the end of the day and do something different tomorrow, but you know it’s just good to have that option and it feels good to be able to provide those women who want that option with it.’
