Karen Arthur honours her late Aunt Monica.
In today's black history take over the one and only Karen Arthur honours her late Aunt Monica.
Karen shares very real and very honest complex feelings about ganging freedom following a relationship break-up then quickly having to relinquish this new found freedom to care for her Aunt Monica in a period of illness.
Just as Karen decided to embrace caring for her Aunt she sadly passed away. Through grief Karen found a deepened love of fashion and started to make conscious choices about the clothes she wears to alter her mood. #WEARYOURHAPPY was born. The sad passing of Aunt Monica led Karen to her new path as a mental health advocate, fashion designer, speaker, event organiser and more!
