Hello, I’m Katie Alice. I am a university graduate, and I have studied both fashion and textiles to degree level. I’m also an artist, illustrator, fashion designer; textiles print designer, costume maker, wearer of socks, a budding guitarist, creative entrepreneur, dog owner, inspired by everything and anything. I’m a lover of the strange, the unusual and pyjama days. I’m also nerd, loon, vegetarian, huge Tolkien fan, avid tea drinker, daughter, sister, niece and friend. I plan to make a living doing what I love.
I been told that I’ve always had a creative streak and I made clothes for my Barbie’s as a little girl, so I naturally wanted to study art at college, as I enjoy drawing and painting beyond belief. I then stayed to further my knowledge in fashion and textiles studying both to a degree level, with a desire to pursue a career in the arts – although it could be said that the current economic climate isn’t the best time to start a fashion company, but I can sort of return to my “roots” in art, I’ve built my portfolio while studying and through placements as a designer and maker. No doubts I will love, lose, change my job and most definitely change my mind!
I am also avid supporter of other handmade and independent businesses. Rock the handmade movement!
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my work.
