About Carl Abad
An agent of influence, owner and creator of Worth – Carl Abad has a sharp and international eye for creativity and culture. Scrutinizing fashion, beauty, living spaces, art and design, he is able to forecast tomorrow’s greatest trends, emerging labels and the rising artist who will become icons.
In the mid 90’s Abad moved to London, England where his obsession for fashion and culture exploded. “I wanted to experience life in a pushing the envelope sense,” says Abad. While in London Abad worked as a freelance fashion stylist where he met and assisted some of the UK’s most noted Fashionistas such as designers Kim Jones and Mickey Brazil, stylist Tassos, photographer Lana Vanzetta and style icon Isabella Blow. Abad was also a visual stylist and merchandiser for Diesel, where he gained his expertise on fashion forward denim including, quality, design and fit.
With more than five years experience in the London fashion industry, Abad returned to Canada with a stronger sense of style and motivation to create a boutique that would shake things up in Calgary’s fashion scene, resulting in the creation of Worth.
