About the Artist
Born in Paris, and raised in Miami, Karelle Levy is as much an artist as she is a designer. As a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, she acquired a BFA in Textile Design. Karelle moved back to Miami and worked as a costume designer for dance and theater productions, and even performed herself. Still drawn to creating fabrics, Karelle began knitting again, and created costumes for her own experimental movement performances. These daring and creatively progressive performances cultivated into the first fashion forward pieces of a ready-to-wear line.
