DESIGNER BIO/ BACKGROUND 
Katherine Brown is a Wardrobe Stylist, Personal Shopper and Designer. Early on in her career she discovered how ‘lost’ many people appeared within the clothing options they had selected to wear. What became most apparent was, they didn’t appear to exude much confidence either.

Brown saw this as a red flag. She started noticing more and more of a lack of ‘self-expression’ within people’s wardrobing. Which then translates in to how they choose to live their lives. “People are not allowing their personalities to shine through their clothing.” I want to bring back the creative zest in peoples’ lives. Confidence through clothing and confidence in living a healthy life.
Brown’s passion for style, design, both fashion and interiors, and consumer behavior worldwide led her to The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, where she received her degree in Fashion Merchandising + Marketing.

Her love for both the fashion industry and building confident beings brought her to form company, Chanari, pronounced [kuh-nair-ee].
