KariGam Debuts at New York Fashion Week
Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

What does reality star Jamie Chung, “doll face” model Jessica Stam and musician/fashionista Solange Knowles all have in common? They attended the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) debut of the 2016 spring/summer line from KariGam. The women’s line features elegant, simplistic and high quality looks to complement a woman’s “ready for the world” personality paired with her effortless fashion sense. Karina Gamez, creative director of KariGam, gains her inspiration from world travel and architectural design intermingled with a desire to make women feel like they can break fashion “rules” without compromising their personal style.

Fashion wasn’t the immediate career path for Venezuelan-born Gamez. Before she studied business administration and fashion design, she worked for her parents’ import/export company learning the ropes of what it takes to manage a successful business. Her intelligence, business acumen and passion for intricate designs have led to the growth of KariGam and its positive reception at NYFW.

The KariGam online boutique launched during NYFW ’16. Visit the boutique at www.karigam.com and view the gallery for KariGam’s SS16 looks.
