KAREN SCHMELZER
Owner & Stylist at Grayce Ln.

4 Years Experience
San Antonio, Texas Member

Karen is the owner of Grayce Ln. Fashion who is breaking barriers and revamping the game by offering chic designer looks for rent or purchase. Launched in 2017, Grayce Ln answered a need for women who find it hard to keep their dress game fresh and fashion-forward. Many times, when faced with having to attend a formal function, women ask the question, “Will I ever were this again?” The answer to the call was her specialty shop allowing women to rent (or buy) glamorous looks while offering impeccable customer service to her customers and clients. Karen spent seventeen years leading teams and building corporate process and operations at Rackspace, so she has a keen understanding of the value of a world class customer experience. It is this reason that her fashion boutique has seen such rapid success and continues to grow. In 2018, she was nominated Retailer of the Year aside companies that have been around three times as long as Grayce Ln. and currently, she has expanded services from not only formal wear but now, casual, trendy and accessories as well. Karen is loved by her colleagues and adored by her customers. She continues to support others and works with many organizations.

“It’s imperative that we are a community and support the growth of fashion in San Antonio. We need to be leaders for our city so it continues to thrive, gain appeal and represent the Texas fashion industry globally in a positive way.”
