In the SoCa Spotlight: Karen De Freitas-Fraser, Fashion Designer.
We came across this Caribbean Designer, and fell in love with her style.. love her name as well ;) A website definitely worth checking out!!
The name ‘Soka’ comes from the monogram So-Karen and also her passion for Soca music. Karen started her fashion life seriously at the age of 17. She began as a self taught designer interested in sportswear and worked under professionally trained Caribbean designers both in Martinique in 2007, where she resided for some time, and her homeland St. Vincent, taking all experiences gained and applying them to her work. In 2010 she experimented with Swimwear Design, and for 2011 she designed an accessory line. Currently she is located in New York, and is a first year student at Parsons: The New School for Design, pursuing a BFA in Fashion Design and interned with Fashion houses such as Zaralo LLC.
