Nolcha Fashion Week: New York presented by RUSK, now in its sixth year, is proud to announce that Karo Swimwear will be joining the schedule in September 2013 for the Spring/Summer 2014 collections.

Designer Kasia Roginska shares: “My words cannot express how happy and privileged I feel being a part of Nolcha Fashion Week. It has been my dream and dreams do come true.”

As a child Kasia was always passionate about hand sewing simple outfits for her dolls. Her parents, particularly her father, Jozef, taught her how to use a sewing machine for her projects and also encouraged her to continue her creativity by studying fashion design. Shortly after her graduation, the whole family immigrated to USA, state of Connecticut. For a few years Kasia disconnected from her trade as she became a wife and a mother.

Sadly, in October 2012 Kasia’s father passed away unexpectedly and this sparked the idea for Karo Swimwear. By creating and designing, she feels like she is making him proud. Kasia feels he’s behind it all, helping her, navigating her to the path she belongs. Not only does Kasia’s influence come from her father, the fabric she chooses, the stones she finds and walking around stores also influences her work. These influences combined with the “craze” of her imagination led to Karo Swimwear being born.

The brand aims to fulfill the philosophy that every woman loves to feel sexy and sophisticated; highlighting the features of feminine body with custom made swim suits. The signature style of Karo Swimwear is bold, bright, asymmetrical, sexy, sophisticated designs with built in gems and jewels.

Kasia comments: “The toughest obstacle was to believe in myself and my abilities to impress people with my work. Designing and creating is my passion, once I start I simply can’t stop until I have completed what I set out to do.  It’s my childhood love, and now going back to this amazing world of fashion is a dream come true. I’ve met so many amazing and supportive people that make me realize that I am actually doing something great. I am stronger now and will do all I can to make my dreams happen and to make my dad proud.”

Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week shares; “I am thrilled that we are able to offer this support to help talented designers like Karo Swimwear towards commercial success and personal achievements and I look forward to her upcoming collection this September.”
