Karlene Lindsay Designs Mission

by Karlene Lindsay-Worrell November 23, 2016

Karlene Lindsay Designs Mission

Karlene Lindsay Designs mission came from my childhood and how I grew up in Jamaica. To find out more about our mission and why I started my business keep reading.

My mom had five kids, three girls two boys. Both boys died at a young age, back in Jamaica. My parents didn't have much money, but we were fed.  They couldn't afford to buy a lot of clothes for us, but we had one beautiful dress we called our Sunday best. I loved dressing up, so i started to cut up my mom's sheets and curtains to make clothes for myself by hand using needle and thread(No sewing machine). Watch the video below to learn more. 

 

 

 To learn more about how I got started and what I have been doing since read more in our About page.

Karlene started sewing at the age of 9... sewing a pleated skirt by hand (she is much older now, but let's not get into that). Between that time and now she's been honing her skill. After studying at Gibbs College for three years, she aquired a position at an occasion store, called Blue Tulip, which sold gifts for every occasion. Bags were one of the highlights of the store's stock and it was from here that she got the idea to start making bags. You see, she realized that some of what was on sale could have come from her very own hands; so she made a few. Karlene started out by selling bags to friends and family at bag parties hosted by friends. Now she has branched out into building her own website to display her beautiful work. Her designs had been featured at Fashion Shows throughtout the country, Great Lakes Fashion Week, Jersey City Fashion Week, Connecticut Fashion Week, Cest Magnificent Boston Fashion Week, and NY Fashion Week. Karlene Designs had been in the media, Fox 8 News and nj.com, just to name a few.
