London based jewellery and textile designer Karen McGuire spent her formative years being raised and educated in Hong Kong and SE Asia, which has strongly influenced her approach to art and design.
She studied at the Royal College of Art in constructed Textiles and Accessory design. After graduating Karen worked on some of the World's best known fashion brands: Donna Karan, Shanghai Tang, French Connection and Romeo Gigli.
The natural evolution for Karen and her experience is the CHIME LONDON brand. A brand that combines Karen's own philosophy with the influences and techniques of the Far East to deliver unique and original accessories.
