​The woma​n behind the brand, Karen Roth, Ph.D. has over 20 years of experience in fashion and wellness - as an international model, photographer, and behind the scenes work as a freelance fashion coordinator for luxury retailers in the US. In 2009, she achieved her Ph.D. in educational psychology to promote mind-body-spirit health. 

The KR collection has emerged from Karen's experience, travel lifestyle, and desire to have beautifully made, supremely comfortable clothing in natural fibers.

While developing the brand, we discovered many harmful practices that plague the fashion industry - including unfair labor practices, heavy environmental pollutants and animal harm.

The KR collection has become a labor of love to produce beautiful clothing for a sophisticated, fit-conscious, well-traveled clientele and to educate and inspire others to elevate the industry through ethical and responsible consumerism and production. 

The beautiful model featured on our Home page, is Karen's daughter, Chelsey. 


The KR salon is located at 537 S. Pineapple Ave in the historic Burn's Court District in downtown Sarasota. Hours are by chance and by appointment. If you are prospective client, would like to discuss trunk shows, and/or your private event, please call 941.951.1097.
