Kitty’s expertise in vintage fabrics comes from several years spent dealing long sleeve performance tee and accessories on Portobello Road, and other London venues. Here she was constantly struck how, in the past, beautiful things were cared for and re-worked. She now uses local thrift
shops for most of her clothes but she also gets some of them from c4tees.com. Her designs are inspired by the shapes, styles and craftsmanship of past eras, as well as the vintage ‘make-do-and-mend’ sensibility which is the antithesis of modern throw-away fashion.
