Press Release: Fashion Roundtable To Host An In Conversation With Fashion Legend Karen Binns.
On Thursday 17/10 Fashion Roundtable will host an exclusive In Conversation evening with legendary fashion editor Karen Binns, bringing the conversation we hosted at Port Eliot Festival last summer to The Curtain, London.
Karen’s career reads like a who’s who of the creative industries: from NYC to London, from Paris to Singapore, from Lagos to LA, she has worked with the leaders and insiders across music, fashion, art and culture, leading creatives towards a representative and relevant pop culture.
From working with art visionary Jean-Michel Basquiat (he first walked the catwalk for Comme-des-Garcons because of Karen’s intervention), to defining cult artist Tori Amos’ style for a generation, podcasting for Love Magazine, reviewing catwalk shows for SHOWstudio, as well as consulting for brands such as Savile Row icon Ozwald Boateng, to new gen talents ArtSchool London, Karen’s insider role has connected fashion to art, curating collaborations such as Andre Walker for Kim Jones, or bringing Nile Rodgers and Chic to play at an exclusive party for French Vogue at Paris Couture Fashion Week, to brilliant effect.
Marc Jacobs on Karen: "I've known Karen both personally and professionally for over two decades. Her boundless energy and enthusiasm for fashion is always a great and welcome inspiration to me. Her soaring, distinct vision and her insightful unique interpretation of 'what is ' and 'what will be' makes her a truly rare and exceptional voice in the fashion universe."
As Fashion Director for Fashion Roundtable, Karen has spoken on inclusion and new generation talent at several of our events and regularly reviews the London and Paris shows for our audience. Binns has contributed to numerous panels on fashion, pop culture, the arts and diversity, including at the V&A, MASTERED and Lulu Kennedy. Her aptitude to culturally curate incisive collaborations between art, music, fashion and curators is now globally renowned. Want to hear how she does it: full details of the In Conversation with Karen Binns are here.
