The Height of Style Team
Kacy Karlen, Founder and Editor-in-Chief
I grew up in a very rural town in Vermont, so it has been quite a journey to developing a style destination for tall, stylish folks worldwide.
I attended Bowdoin College, where I majored in English and Visual Art. After spending several years working in the art world, I moved to Boston to take a writing job and began freelancing as a style educator and later, fashion stylist, for Boston’s full-service styling agency, Stilista. In 2010, I launched The Height of Style for tall women underserved by mainstream fashion.
Over the years, I’ve been featured in Elle Magazine, voted one of WBUR’s “Boston’s Best” in the Local Media category , and interviewed by Groupon, Boston.com, Statuesque Magazine, and others. I’ve had the pleasure of working with brands including Long Tall Sally, Barefoot Tess, Upper Street, ASOS, Long Elegant Legs, Peruvian Connection, and more for product and content campaigns. Aside from managing The Height of Style and related collaborations, I serve as Associate Creative Director at Captains of Industry, a creative content marketing agency in Boston.
Ted Page, Managing Editor, men’s stream
Ted is one of the founders of Captains of Industry, a creative content marketing firm with expertise in clean energy and sustainability. As the Creative Director for Captains, Ted helps companies tell their stories and bring their products to market in North America. Ted and his team, with offices in Boston and San Francisco, crafted the brand and marketing for First Wind, taking them from a small start-up to become one of the top wind energy brands in the United States.
In 2013, Ted wrote the Climate Declaration for BICEP (Business for Innovative Climate and Energy Policy), an initiative signed by Apple, Nike, Starbucks, Levis, Ikea, eBay and many other global companies that urged immediate action to tackle climate change. Ted wrote the script for “The Institute for Backup Trauma,” starring John Cleese (and also appeared briefly on camera with him just for bragging rights). Ted’s non-fiction stories have been published in Boston Magazine and the Boston Sunday Globe magazine.
Ted is a member of Souled Out Artists, a group that performs spoken word stories. Ted has a large footprint in the world of fashion, meaning that he has size 16 feet.
