Premium scrubs supplier, Kara, introduces its new ‘Kara Edit’ collection. The collection consists of a 10-piece range of scrubs, including tops and trousers for both men and women, available in a selection of colours.
Meet the face behind the new Kara Edit collection, Lead Designer, Alexandra Allen. Having previously worked in the clothing industry, designing items for both UK high street and high-end retailers, Alexandra incorporated a trend-led style into the Kara Edit range, whilst also ensuring the scrubs are fit for purpose.
The design process involved extensive market research and learning more about what customers really want from their scrubs. This helped to inform the collection which developed into what is today – a stylish yet practical range.
Alexandra tailored the designs to meet customers’ needs, one of which was the need for pockets. The Kara Edit features a multi-pocket design approach throughout the range which includes pockets for ID cards, phones, pens, secure zip closures and even scissor pockets – perfect for health and wellness professionals.
Items feature a water-resistant and durable fabric, which includes motion-stretch construction for comfortable movement. Far from your usual scrubs, the Kara Edit brings a fashion-forward touch to flatter all body types.
The process of designing the new edit hasn’t always been plain sailing, Alexandra explains: “Due to the challenges of developing the range whilst navigating a worldwide pandemic, the project has taken longer than originally anticipated; we started discussing the concept behind the collection over two years ago.”
Despite the difficulties faced, Alexandra believes the extra time allowed the team to spend more time to finetune and develop the collection even further, to create a collection the team are all truly proud of.
Looking towards the future, Alexandra confirms that the team will continue to expand their collections with more styles and shapes that are on-trend whilst also being fit for the workplace.
