Coming from a background in the corporate world, Karyn brings a business mind to MFW+ with experience in finance, corporate event management and project work. Her passion for producing exceptional and professional events along with her desire to create a feast for the senses has led to the commitment to creating the best Fashion event the Plus size fashion industry has seen, both in Australia and Internationally.
Having worked on Curvy Couture from 2013 onwards and being part of the Executive Committee for the 2015 event, Karyn has experience with putting on a sold out high level Fashion Event. One of her strengths is the ability to build strong relationships with all stakeholders involved in the event production process while ensuring the event still holds true to the over-arching vision. Multitasking is something that Karyn is highly skilled in, as demonstrated by the fact that during previous fashion event production she has worked full time while also studying business at University.
Originally from Adelaide, Karyn moved to Melbourne in 2011 after having lived in England and Canada during her 20s. Throughout this time overseas it opened her eyes to the limited fashion that is available to the plus size community when compared to the straight size community, particularly in Australia, and is a constant source of frustration for Karyn. One of her aims for MFW+ is to close this gap and give the plus size community a multitude of options to appeal to the fashionable woman.
