Karen Leong

Karen Leong was born in Singapore in 1977. In 2000, she moved to London to pursue a master’s in international journalism. Shortly after graduating, she started work at i-D and is now the magazine’s production manager. In addition to her full-time job, she continues to pursue her writing interests, contributing to WestEast and i-D. Time for her is particularly precious: “Especially with a one-year-old son to look after.” In this issue, she spoke to Fiona Knapp, and has this to say about her subject: “Fiona’s jewellery is beautiful. Especially her use of colour. And I was very keen to find out what fuels her passion for gemstones.”
