Why Karl Said So?

Many fashion icons and designers inspire me because of their creative talents as world-renowned artists, influencers and photographers. Often, they are controversial and infamous, in addition to their fame. Most notably, I draw inspiration from the passion and drive of Tom Ford, Phoebe Philo, Rei Kawakubo, and Karl Lagerfeld. “Karl” holds a special place in my heart because it is also the name of the San Francisco marine layer (yes, we locals love our unique humor and cool weather). Thus, Karl Said So was born.
