I've known Kara since the late 90's when she was a dance student of mine and I have since had the pleasure of watching her mature into a one of a kind trendsetter, fashion designer and style icon! Her work with PARK is so inspiring and important to local culture as she has built up and showcased our world class designers and artists. Every time we've worked together she's challenged me to get out of my comfort zone and take my personal style to the next level.  It's an honour to have seen Kara transform from a student, to friend and now a role model and mentor of mine within the arts community. Congrats Kara!

I've had the pleasure of working with Kara Chomistek since the beginning of PARK.  She is one of the most driven people I know and a tireless advocate for the fashion community in Alberta.   The growth her company has experienced has provided countless opportunities for designers and artists in the province.
