Closet Confidential: Karina Tong

Posted: Sunday, July 27, 2014 12:00 am

Growing up in Bangkok, Thailand, Karina Tong was wild about patterns and color. In fact, she had dreams of studying fashion design in college, but her father said no. If she wanted to draw, she should study architecture, he said. And so she did. 

While earning her bachelor’s degree from Chulalongkorn University, she participated in a “work and travel” program during the summer months. The program brought her to Galveston, where she got a hostess job at Happy Buddha restaurant. It was there that she met her husband, Adam, and she moved to Galveston permanently in 2010.
