KARA is a New York City-based accessories brand founded by Chinese American designer Sarah Law in 2013. KARA is an enthusiastic dedication to the intimate recognition that for many of us, identity is complex, conflicting and fluid. Each design is a blank canvas, encouraging individuality and reflecting the attitude that you should wear the bag, the bag should not wear you. KARA derives from the Japanese word ‘karaoke’, which means ‘empty orchestra’. Emptiness creates space for personal interpretation and self-expression.
