Founder and designer, Carrie K
Stylistically creative, Carolyn Kan had over a decade of experience in advertising before pursuing her passion for jewelry which led to the founding of jewellery company Carrie K. A year after its founding, Carrie K won Elle Singapore magazine's award for Jewellery Designer of the Year. Eight years after its founding, Carrie K. is reaching for the golden bar; in 2016 the brand partnered with a Disney for a year-long collaboration. Still yearning for more, Carolyn opened Keepers, a pro bono initiative spotlighting independent designers, artists and artisans in Singapore. Clearly, someone took heed of Keepers namesake; this past February, Keepers was given a permanent store at the National Design Centre (NDC) showcasing and selling wares by local designers.
