Karen Walker Britomart
Karen Walker started off as a local clothes designer, and is now recognised as a bona fide fashion icon. With three stores in Britomart, Grey Lynn and Newmarket, her eponymous label has branched out to include eyewear, footwear, gold and silver jewellery and even diamonds. International cred has also come her way - in Phaidon’s ‘Sample’ she's listed amongst the most significant fashion designers working today, and she also appears in Taschen’s ‘Fashion Now 2’. Her flagship store is this one in Britomart looking out onto a courtyard that oozes design.
