About Burning Torch
Burning Torch, a privately held company based in Los Angeles, is a leading fashion brand founded in 1999 by designer Karyn Craven. Its unique philosophy and distinctive designs have propelled the line into a consistent favorite among a diverse fashion-forward clientele both here in the US and abroad.
As the logo suggests, Burning Torch's foundation is based on transformation and freedom; the brand, like each of its individual pieces, is built on respect for individuals and their cultures. The collections are driven by a vision that melds vintage, modern, organic and global sentiments. Unique to the company is Craven's commitment to recycling materials and to the idea that the energy of all time and history is in each and every garment.
Burning Torch's debut collection, made from recycled vintage garments, was bought by Barneys New York in the fall of 1999. As the distribution expanded rapidly, the collection transformed in tandem with Craven focused on the creation of distinctive silhouettes, newly developed fabrics and treatments, as well as unique hand-detailing. Today, each Burning Torch garment reflects tremendous attention to detail, which has become a signature characteristic of the line. The collections are also perceived as transcending age and time - a key reason for the loyal following that the brand enjoys.
