Designer, Artist, Stylist, Creator...

Karen Fleisch has been designing & styling her world since she was a little girl. Wanting to soak up as much as possible, she managed a bridal shoppe & did promotional modeling while going to school at Traphagen School of Fashion. After a semester at The Paris Fashion Institute, Karen got an assistant designing job at a moderate dress house in NYC’s Garment Center. It was a brief run however, as a few years later, in 1986, she met Robi Diana and within 6 months created a line of dark romantic rock n roll clothing that went on to change the look of “alternative fashion” from that time forward...
Originally called “Accomplice”, they needed to change the name 10years in... “Accomplice” & later “Arkivestry” became known for dressing well known & cutting edge musicians, performers & amazing people of the night.
Under the Arkivestry license & as a freelance designer on her own, Karen has designed creative pattern designs for the iconic company Simplicity Patterns.
Simplicity also hired her to style the photo shoots for their catalog as well as creating the sets in order to see the vision of her sketches come to life.
Through the years, Karen has designed & styled for various production companies to create independent films, webisodes, videos & theater.
As well as designing wardrobe for these projects, Karen has had numerous acting roles. Karen also keeps herself inspired by playing tambourine, shakers & vocals in the NYC based band Gusher as well as doing other guest performances.

All of my designs are original, handmade with love & care in a smoke & animal free environment. Since most of my designs are made to order, the customer can often choose color & fabric to personalize the creative process. I sometimes get local sewing help.
