It’s their passion. You can tell by the way her collection is designed. Every piece understands womens’ bodies, their individual beauty and their lifestyles. 

Kate understands more than any other bridal designer the brides desire to be her best self and to express that in their own way. Making the wedding dress work for them, not the bride work-out for the dress!

Kate’s clients reads like a who’s who of the fashion glitterati. She is a trusted stylist and friend to British icons Kate Moss, Erin O’Connor and Emilia Fox amongst others.

To be a bride under Kate’s expertise, is to be a bride feeling confident, beautiful, spoiled and “loved”.

Kate graduated with a BA Honors in Fashion Design in 1998 and went on to study for an MA in Textiles from London’s prestigious Central St. Martins, feeding her obsession with fabrics, lace and beading. This knowledge and experience, combined with Kate’s skills as a stylist, gives her an unparalleled ability to design and create breathtaking wedding gowns.
