Katie Jones is a London based Knitwear Designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins in March 2013. Her work takes focus on expanding the boundaries of handcrafts into high fashion. Producing her first collection previously for A/W 11 focusing on large embellished hand crochet and intricate patterned knit. Her work is all about employing traditional English craft techniques, handed down to her through her family, with a twist. She focuses on translating these crafts with a modern execution to produce bold high-fashion handcrafted designs, juxtaposing and collaborating these classic construction methods with influence from her obsession with native and tribal textiles.
Her A/W 13 carried on her focus with pushing the boundaries of traditional crochet creating a 9 look collection of intricate fully hand crochet designs. Which played with a wide variety of crochet stitch techniques, tone, texture and stripe proportions. Katie has previously worked at John Galliano, Diane Von Furstenberg, Mark Fast and Romance was Born, and is now producing a new vibrant collection to exclusively launch at Brighton Fashion Week 2013.
Katie will be showcasing her new collection at The Zeitgeist Show on Thursday June 13th.
