Karen Ter Morshuizen

Lunar is the lifestyle vision of fashion designer Karen Ter Morshuizen. Her partnership with Paul Harris saw the conception of a lifestyle store offering unique nature-inspired merchandise. Karen and her partner's concepts and materials are based on an under- standing of and sensitivity to environmental concerns. This influences their use of almost exclusively natural fibres and pigment dyes. Each collection reflects their essential design philosophy. Karen enjoys reviving old-fashioned techniques: hand knitting, smocking, felting, African beading and hand embroidery. These crafts are often interpreted into uncomplicated designer garments. The result is a couture approach to ready-to-wear fashion. With these principles the fashion and decor brand aspires to enter the global market where they can reach a larger audience with their message and continue to contribute, educate and inspire. For Karen "Lunar is about finding inspiration in the small things around us, and emphasising an appreciation for our environment�.
