Karolina's Rise

After being spotted by a model scout in 1999, Kurkova was signed to an exclusive Prada/Miu Miu contract. Soon after, she became the youngest model to grace the cover of American Vogue at age 16 and was lauded as the “next supermodel” by its famed editor Anna Wintour.

Over the last few decades, her resume has only gotten more impressive, including highlights such as twenty-five Vogue magazine covers, being named a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and completing massive campaigns with fashion industry heavyweights like Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton. But while everyone was focused on her glamorous outward appearance, it turns out that she’s always been about what’s on the inside rather than out.

Karolina believes that beauty and well-being begin on the inside; she and her partners, Orion Nevel & Rachel Finger, co-founded Gryph & IvyRose, a wellness and lifestyle brand in 2018. This past year they have launched products in Walmart’s and Whole Foods across Florida. Gryph & IvyRose was created by 3 passionate parents who wanted to craft a diverse product line that would support the body’s immune function, present high performance and lasting results, as well as offer daily regimens to address the health challenges children and parents face.

Professional Superpower

Karolina is a master of creativity. When she first started Gryph & IvyRose, she that their small business didn’t have the same resources and budgets that larger brands had. Budget didn’t set her back! She leaned into mindfulness and creativity to work smarter as she got her brand started.

Personal Superpower

Growing up in the Czech countryside instilled in her a deep love and appreciation for all things natural. Since she was 19 years old, Karolina has been experimenting with alternative and holistic practices in both beauty and health. She carries these practicies with her as she expands Gryph & IvyRose’s product suite.

What Drives Karolina

Karolina is passionate about every element of life that supports our well-being. This is the drive behind her business and modeling success as well as the drive for many of her partnerships. In 2019, she debuted a chic, functional and eco-friendly collaboration with Cybex on the design for a whole range of products including, stroller, car seat, and a baby carrier for parents who are both fashion-conscious and concerned with child safety.
