Karen Gee Luncheon

When it comes to inspiration for fulfilling your dreams, Australia’s designer to the stars, Karen Gee is no exception.

The born and bred Rockhampton mother of five, who is now based in Sydney, knows what it takes to chase your dreams and make them happen and she shared her journey at a charity lunch on Friday 4th March, 2016.

Today the former Mrs Australia Globe has built a brand from the ground up with no previous experience, no knowledge and no help.

“It was a scary risk as I couldn’t even pattern make,” said Karen. “But I was driven by a strong passion to both design garments that would ooze elegance and simplicity and embrace the female form and to create an experience for all women of every shape, size and background.

“I wanted to take what society had decided was beautiful and broaden that concept.

“I wanted to remind women that we are all beautiful and powerful and special, just the way we are.”

Karen’s pieces are made with the aspiration to ensure all women feel confident in their skin, and know full well their self worth.

Karen dresses many Australian television personalities and inspiring and successful women including Melissa Doyle, Deborah Knight, Lisa Wilkinson and Georgina Lewis.
