From Fashion Editor to Showrunner – The multi-faceted Kara Alloway
After graduating from Canada’s prestigious McGill University (well known for having the highest percentage of PhD students of any Canadian research university) Kara was hired by Conde Nast’s ALLURE Magazine in Los Angeles. While there, under the tutelage of Allure’s founder Linda Wells, Kara’s writing style expanded and matured. Kara quickly became known for her writing contributions, sharing her perspective on the world of fashion and beauty with a journalistic approach, investigating the topics with candor and objectivity.
From there Kara became editor-in-chief of INGENUE Magazine, which under her direction, had the fastest growth in circulation among Canadian publication history for the teen target demographic. Kara then sojourned into radio, hosting a daily show wherein content included interviews with such fashion icons as Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo, Diane Von Furstenburg, Bob Mackie and Oscar de La Renta.
Despite Kara’s many interests she focuses much time on her philanthropic work, including but not limited to organizations such as, The Children’s Aid Society, U for Change, Kids Cops & Computers, Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto Hospital for Sick Children, Opportunity International, Love A Village, and many many more.
Currently Kara has donned the showrunner and producer cap with a new television show in the final stages of development; and penning a much-anticipated book about social consciousness and the empowerment of women.
While not behind a desk working over the keys of her laptop, Kara’s shows off her distinctive sense of fun and classy style on social media and on the red carpet.
