Risky Business: Karlee Edwards, Hard Accessories Assistant Buyer

   Karlee3

It’s business as unusual at NGHQ, and this time we’re turning the spotlight to our in-house superhuman, Karlee Edwards–not just because she’s got a killer eye for ice (and bags and shades and all things accessories), but also because every day for two years she drove TWO HOURS back and forth through gnarly L.A. traffic to get to our DTLA office. Total caped (blazer) crusader. The hustle is so real and it has so paid off–she’s worked her way up from an intern to Assistant Buyer for Hard Accessories, and from living on the cheap in Valencia (where??) to livin’ the dream in Hollywood. Yes gurl. We sat down with the lean, mean, belt-buyin’ machine to find out what a gal’s gotta do to make it in this biz, the biggest take-aways after a couple years on the job, and why failing art class was the best thing that ever happened to her.
