Small4Style Interviews Karl Marshall

Me with Karl Marshall

I caught up with Dallas fashion show producer and style icon Karl Marshall.  He’s incredibly busy, but was so kind to take some time to answer some questions!

Karl Marshall’s style is a unique blend of Texan with European influences.  He likes to throw an “unexpected jacket over a pretty typical outfit” and loves something different in the details of the outfit. His style in two words is “Expressive and Unpretentious.”  When you meet him, you will see that this describes him perfectly!  According to Karl, this season “It is all about the footwear!!”  New rain boots, rubber lace-ups and boots with heels are in this season; flip flops are out!  I am obsessed with rain boots right now.  

A lot of people don’t realize the work that has to be done before the models walk the runway.  Mr. Marshall has already begun working on an April 2012 fashion show, as well one for the Junior League of Arlington.  As a famous and successful fashion show producer, Karl Marshall has some valuable advice for those who want to work in the fashion industry.  He says to get far in this business, you need to stay grounded and have “an open mind and an ever-learning spirit.  This business will pull you all over the place if you let it.”  He adds, “It sounds so cliché but stay true to yourself.  You hear that a lot, and that is the easy part.  The hard part is first figuring out who you are!!”
