Dear iDEALS, British brand Katharine Harrison has been making a name for itself in the ready to wear and bespoke markets in the UK since its label launch in 2011 and is becoming increasingly well recognised for it's historical infuences, timeless silhouettes and commitment to traditional craftsmanship.
Now showcasing her third collection from her Forest Hill studio, Katharine is inspired by the beauty & extravagance of period costume and a passion for contemporary tailoring cut to fatter the female form:
“Our view is that much of the joy of making clothing has been lost in the process of modern manufacturing. By putting the spotlight on traditional craftsmanship, we hope to regain some of the respect lost for the high level of skills involved in making beautiful clothes”
Her signature label is founded on environmental principles using organic cotton and natural silks and all garments are made and hand fnished in the UK.The new Spring/Summer 2013 collection 'FRAGMENTS IN THE GRASS' builds on these design principles and explores the occult phenomenon of 'crop circles'.
Looking at the theory that the circles are 'footprints' left by objects passing through the earths.
