Growing up in Taipei and Los Angeles, Karen’s unique taste is a perfect combination of urban city chic and California casual. With a masters degree in Education from The University of Southern California (USC). She decided to pursue her one true love, Fashion Design at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising(FIDM).Later on joined the design team at Splendid, a fashion label based in Downtown, Los Angeles upon graduation. After a few years, she started Cash & Puppy at a tiny office space in Taipei.Being healthy mentally and physically, straight forward and understated. Karen blends her Independent spirit and a confident attitude into the brand. She develops chic and simple designs that are not only full of details and flexibilities but also stressing the importance of materials and garment qualities. She is firm on the debate of modern women should not have to choose between style and comfort.
The atmosphere in OC is exactly what my line is inspired by.
Inspired by a laid back California lifestyle, Cash & Puppy believes being comfortable is the key of being confident.
