Small Biz Saturdays: KARA by Sarah Law
KARA by Sarah Law (@kara): New York based Accessories Line
Why do you do what you do?
I chose the name KARA from karaoke, which means empty orchestra in Japanese. I loved this idea of an empty space, where you are free to express your personality and creativity. I embrace this approach in the design of the bags, objects, and in the way that they relate to the wearer – empty surfaces onto which you can project yourself. I want the brand to celebrate this multifaceted individual and recognize that, as a community, we can manifest a spectrum.
What do you want the Common Ace community to know?
KARA is an enthusiastic celebration of being many things – not fitting into a specific mold. Because of my background growing up in Hong Kong with a Caucasian, American mother and Chinese father, I’ve always been drawn to creative expressions of individuality and understanding how people imagine themselves free from stereotypes.
I want KARA to provide great designs with a sense of playfulness and with the attitude that you should wear the bag, the bag should not wear you.
