Karlie was founded on Christian principles in 2003.

Karlie has been blessed with phenomenal growth. They began shipping from their garage in Dallas, Texas and have now grown into a 7,500 sq. ft. warehouse. The line is now sold in 500+ boutiques and specialty stores across the United States. Karlie was nominated for a Dallas Fashion Award in their first year in business.

Karlie is a family run business, started by Karen and Charlie Brown. Charlie has been in the apparel business for 50+ years and is "still somewhat normal." Nowadays, he is “The monkey out front” and answers to Karen, Karlie's CEO. Karlie is named for their daughter, Karlie, VP of Operations. Karlie's cousin, Lauren Pearson, keeps everyone looking good while serving as the Creative Director.
