I'm Kara Alloway
After graduating from Canada’s McGill University I was hired by Conde Nast’s ALLURE Magazine in Los Angeles. Under the tutelage of ALLURE’s founder Linda Wells, I worked as the assistant West Coast Editor.
I quickly became known for my writing contributions, sharing my perspective on the world of fashion and beauty with a journalistic approach, investigating the topics with candor and objectivity.
I was recruited back to Canada and became editor-in-chief of INGENUE Magazine, which under my direction, had the fastest growth in circulation among Canadian publication history for the teen target demographic.
In addition, I hosted a daily fashion and beauty radio show, wherein content included interviews with such icons as Stella McCartney, Laura Mercier, Phoebe Philo, Zac Posen, Diane Von Furstenburg, Bob Mackie and Oscar de La Renta.
In 2017, I appeared in the Toronto franchise of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF TORONTO. I innately understood the workings of reality television content and carried the show, prompting several journalists reviewing the franchise to ask, “Without Kara would there even be a show?”
Upon completing work in front of the camera, I signed with Electus in Los Angeles to produce unscripted content. In 2019, I joined Hanger 56 Media in Los Angeles, to continue my role as executive producer.
Recently, I completed work on my first book, a fiction novel, based on my experiences behind and in front of the camera. When I’m not writing or producing, I spend quality time with my husband, Graham, and my three sons: Baron, Hunter, and Christian – at home or on the boat, fishing on the ocean in Key Largo Florida.
