It's been amazing to see KEARA grow from just a concept to a brand that is gaining traction globally. After a successful pop-up in Amsterdam, and our placement in boutiques in Paris, Amsterdam and Dakar, we've proven that the mission of hand-crafted artisanal fashion resonates beyond borders. This spring, KEARA will be featured at expos in Barcelona, Spain and Los Angeles, California.
Here’s the scoop on both :
BARCELONA - Palo Alto Market Fest - April 28, 29, & 30
The Palo Alto Market brings together the best of the international creative community each weekend for a festival filled with exotic food, new music, and of course up-and-coming goods like KEARA bags! We are excited to be apart of their vision to engage both international artists and the Spanish public; their support helps us to further KEARA’s vision, as well. Stroll around the outdoor market to mingle with locals and expats alike and enjoy the vibrant cultures presented. We recommend sporting our Yara Tote to easily carry all of your new goodies!
We recommend you pack a pair of sunglasses, some sandals and a swimsuit in our Burgundy Leather Travel Bag. Be sure to check out the Museu Picasso to see the largest collection of works by Pablo Picasso. Take a relaxing stroll in the Parc Guell and finish your trip with a swim at La Barceloneta Beach.
Friday April 28 from 6:00 PM to midnight
Saturday April 29 from 12:00 PM to midnight
Sunday April 30 from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM
LOS ANGELES - May 13 & 14
Unique LA is a tri-annual shopping event featuring hundreds of hand-selected independent designers, bringing them all together under one big space (this spring, it’s the trendy California Market Center). Besides the amazing brands, media outlets, DJs, and thousands of shoppers are also present. We here at KEARA are thrilled to join Unique on their mission to encourage shoppers to buy locally and spotlight talented artists that are under-represented in the global fashion dialogue. At the event, check out KEARA Bags to witness their quality and critical design yourself. Don't forget to also check out the catered snacks and craft workshops also present!
No trip to LA would be complete without a visit to the Hollywood Sign! Hike up with a group of friends for a good workout and killer views! Keep hydrated in the LA heat with a water bottle and snack packed in one of our backpacks!
In response to KEARA’s continued success on the international market, founder Adriana Valcarce stated, “I am so thrilled about this. Both upcoming expos look fantastic.” Will we see you there? If so, let us know in the comments! Be sure to follow our journey on Instagram.
Unique LA opening hours:
