Miami, FL ―  Knitwear has never been so sexy. Miami fashion designer Karelle Levy infuses a hot and trendy spin into KRELwear, her ready-to-wear collection comprised of uniform colors and minimal construction techniques. The simple, yet intriguing pieces are interchangeable and convertible. It’s entirely by design that a single piece can be worn as a sleeveless top during the day and an alluring miniskirt by night.

Seemingly woven into her knits is Levy’s bohemian, artistic style. Her garments come together in what she calls a “toobular” fashion, using few or no seams in her knitting technique.  

“Living garments, embracing flaws - let it run,” are just a few key phrases she uses to describe her work and the mindset behind it.

Launched in 2003, KRELwear has quickly become a staple in the sizzling Miami fashion scene. Her designs have won her accolades within the fashion industry including being named the esteemed Gen Art “Fresh Face in Fashion” award in 2004. Levy was also honored and thrilled to bring the KRELwear line to the runway at LA Fashion Week in the fall 2007.

KRELwear is becoming a formidable brand and Levy has had the pleasure of designing for several notable celebrity clients including Alanis Morrisette, Cristina Ricci, Carmen Electra, Pink, Cameron Diaz, Hilary Duff, Fergie and the Pussycat Dolls. Popular retailer Sunglass Hut used one of KRELwear’s swimsuits in a recent national ad campaign and the line has been featured in WWD, Lucky, Soma and Ocean Drive.

Levy’s much anticipated upcoming spring line promises to be worth the wait. To get more information about KRELwear or to purchase items from this glamorous collection, please visit the website at or call (305) 576-7465.
