Karen Walker is without doubt New Zealand’s most famous and successful fashion export. The Auckland based designer is an icon of New Zealand contemporary culture. Given we focus in main part on Mens Style and Fashion here at SLAMXHYPE, you might be most familiar with Karen Walker Eyewear, which we’ve featured here regularly and of course are huge fans of. I’m in my homeland of NZ for XMAS and thought it would be interesting to see what people like Karen were looking for locally.
