When we were thinking about who we would like to welcome as a Special Guests to Un-Dress 2019, Karen was one of the first names that immediately popped up in our minds. Karen is a Swiss model, influencer, business woman, activist and ambassador for sustainable living and fashion.
What is it like to be a model behind the glitter and limelight?
I started at the glorious time of fashion
when models were treated and paid very well. Then after 10 years, everything changed dramatically. The market was saturated.
4 years ago I was in Mumbai, and I got furious when the first time my salary was questioned. I was about to quit this job. But I found an exciting way to take a new direction. I was living in a mansion with many models and we taught ourselves how social media works. Some of us got out of the modeling business and became full-time influencers.
