New York City born and raised, Karen Schijman discovered her talent for styling while completing a BFA in photography at The School of Visual Arts.  Her life-long interest in music has motivated her to seek out projects that combine music and fashion.  Karen’s Chilean heritage has proven helpful in working with Spanish-speaking clients and working in Ibero-America.  Karen has also supported designers in a creative consulting capacity (Karolina Zmarlak) and most recently, launched a successful line of handbags Chascona Bags.
