Karri Frerichs is a wife, mother, and an entrepreneur. She moved to LA from San Francisco and started her own sustainable fashion company. She started her business, Circular Fashion LA, in 2019 and has already made a change in the fashion industry. She hosts events every second Friday of the month, “Second Fridays,” attends events to build connections, and has started to focus on size inclusive items, aside from being a sustainable fashion business. Although being sustainable sometimes limits you from creating new clothing or design new styles, it is the best approach to helping the economy stay green and far away from pollution, destruction of the oceans, and much more. Karri is still learning the ins and outs of this industry and her business. The pandemic did have an impact on her new business, but she tries to maintain a healthy and positive environment for herself in order for her and her family to stay sane. She does not let anything stop her from pursuing her dreams and accomplishing her goals. She loves to help educate students and people about the fashion industry, which is why working as a teacher at Woodbury University has been a major accomplishment for her.
