Marcia Witter Williams is a professionally trained Fashion Designer who graduated
with a degree in Fashion Design from F.I.T (Fashion Institute of Technology) in the
1980’s,and subsequently worked as a successful Fashion Designer of women’s wear
and childrenswear fashion. As a result of the financial impact on the economy in the
80’s she subsequently moved on to a career in the legal field and then Banking
where she currently works as a professional banker.
In Marcia’s quest to make an impact on lupus medical research by way of the
Rosemarie K. Witter Foundation Inc (RKW). an organization she founded over a
decade ago, in honor of her late sister affectionately known as Rosie. Raising funds
has been very difficult for a disease still relatively unknown to many, therefore she
decided to tap into her creative inner self to launch a fashion line named “Karenza
Collection” Rosie’s middle name to help fund the mission of the organization. The
vision of this collection is “despite adversities we strive” Living our best life each day,
working, traveling, exercising. #ageisjustanumber #fashionforapurpose #selfcare
As we were emerging from the pandemic in early 2022, Marcia thought to herself,
there are so many people who are selling clothes online, many without a fashion
background, perhaps she could design 1 item to sell online. However, the industry
has changed since she worked as a fashion designer therefore, she decided to take a
Fashion Production and Development course, visit a fashion influencer in California
for a master course. This opened a new perspective in her concept. Therefore, Marcia
decided to launch a ready wear women’s collection and an athleisure line. The RKW
organization logo is inspired by her sister Rosie’s love of white roses and the yellow
butterfly symbolizing hope for a cure in lupus. This inspired Marcia’s vision to design
fabrics with white roses and the yellow butterfly.
The color scheme includes shades of blue, yellow and white, that includes women.
suits separate, athleisure wear, menswear, socks, scarfs and handbags.
Marcia has worked vigorously to launch her amazing fashion collection;
entitled Karenzaly yours Capsule Collection 2024. Collection launch date October 15,
