Early life and education[edit | edit source]

Christina Dietel[1] was born in Marblehead, Massachusetts,[citation needed] 20 miles outside of the Boston area. Her father is an antique collector from Germany and her Mother is a flight attendant originally from the Ukraine.Template:Not in source given[2][3] She graduated from Marblehead High School in 2001, 4th in her class.[citation needed] Christina was fascinated with all aspects of art, design, and entrepreneurship from an early age.[4] From starting a handmade greeting card company at age 10 to internships in the magazine industry, she spent her youth immersed in fashion and the arts. Christina also had a short stint as a model and actress in NYC and Los Angeles, appearing in independent films such as Forgotten West.[5] She is a graduate of Boston University where she double majored in Economics and Art History (2005).[6] She later also attended Chicago's premier School of the Art Institute.[7]

Career[edit | edit source]

After a decade-long career in both the financial industry as well as Wall Street (NYSE), Christina chose to break away from the predictable by pioneering her own vision for what women are seeking in a fashion brand.[8] After attending the School of the Art Institute, she launched Christina Karin in November of 2012. She was also a Designer-In-Residence for the Macy's Chicago Fashion Incubator[9] where she garnered much praise for her work and brand vision. Since then, the line has become a cult favorite, empowering women to play by their own rules and dress for the life they want.[10][11] Christina Karin Inc. is located at 2301 West North Ave in Chicago, IL.

Personal life[edit | edit source]

She married financial manager Cy Monley. They live in Chicago.[1][12] They have two children: a son, Colton Gerard; and daughter, Romee Karin.[13]
