Collection Title: Innate
Growing up in an artistic community and family, Katharine fostered an interest in fibers, materials, and textures, as well as their application in various design fields. With a strong draw to fashion, much of her textile design work aims to translate art, whether it be photography, painting, or handwork, into wearable pieces focusing on texture and form.
Collection Description: Innate explores nature’s simplistic spirit and hidden complexity. Focusing on natural materials and a neutral palette, humble form predicates unique detail through texture and dimension. This is used to create a fresh womenswear collection highlighting handmade elements in wovens, knits, and print design.
