Since her launch of Karen Zambos in 1999, Karen has continued to reinvent the allure of bohemian charm with new levels of ease and sophistication. The Chicago native embodies the confident, sexy, and intelligent spirit and style of her customers.
Karen Zambos relocated to Los Angeles in 1994, where she began her career in fashion as an in-house stylist and buyer at a well-known, high-end boutique. It very quickly became evident to Karen that women wanted to wear something effortless, with slip-it-on style. She began experimenting in reconstruction by gathering vintage pieces and re-working them for a more contemporary look and from this Karen Zambos was born. The line has since evolved into a diverse collection that includes everything from tailored pants and embellished tops, to maxi dresses and jumpsuits.
Over the past decade, Karen Zambos has not only become one of the hottest names originating from the L.A. fashion scene, but she also created a following of top Hollywood celebrities. Jessica Alba, Paris Hilton, Selma Blair, Giuliana Rancic, and the Kardashian sisters are just a few of her loyal clients. Karen attributes her success to believing in her work and taking everything one-step at a time. What started with just a few pieces has evolved into a collection of apparel, belts and handbags sold not only across the United States, but also internationally.
