My name is Karina Stephenson I am British Designer. I began my studies in England and gained a First class Honors Desgree in Fashion Design and Textiles at UCA, Kent University & my collection was chosen to represent the university by Karen Milen. In 2012, I moved to Barcelona to complete an Internship with Miriam Ponsa, a Catalan Textile Designer, supporting the preparation of Transhumància, the collection autumn-winter 2013-14 that was awarded 'The best AW 2013-14 collection' at the 080 Barcelona Fashion week. Shortly after, I started an Internship with NEKANE. Working closely with suppliers I was responsible for ensuring quality control, completing Design Specifications, Trend Research and reworking existing designs. In 2015, I began a Masters at FDModa, Felicedad Duce , in Fashion Design & Accessories, whilst completing work experience for NONCHALANT. Currently I continue to work P/T as a Design Assistant/Junior Designer for NONCHALANT, working on Patterns and Design Specifications on Photoshop and Illustrator on Womenswear & Accessories.
