You can always count on Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town to wear cutting edge fashion on awards shows or in music videos like their latest clip, “Tornado.” The two have been friends since college, and Karen was the one leading Kimberly fashion-wise back then.
Karen tells Lucky magazine about Kimberly’s fashion evolution saying, “I think her love for it grew out of singing and doing what we do for a living.”
On the other hand, Karen could have considered a career in fashion if her heart wasn’t set on music.
“I used to design my own prom dresses because I didn’t want anything off the rack,” Karen admits. “I would go and find Vogue Patterns and marry the back of a skirt of a Vogue pattern with the shoulder from a different pattern, for example.”
Karen would then pick out her fabric and take the patterns to a dress designer.
She says, “I can’t say they always came out great. You know, I laugh at some of them now, but it definitely was inspired.”
Look for Karen and Kimberly to sport some high-fashion looks on their Tornado tour launching January 31 in Murray, KY.
