Katie DarlingtonMaker in Focus

16 June - 02 August 2015

Katie Darlington is an award winning fashion and print designer. Born and raised on the Welsh coast Katie moved to London and graduated from Kingston University in 2013 before founding her synonymous fashion label Katie Darlington London. 

Her debut collection 'Collecting sentiment' saw innovative pattern cutting and print design, which won her the Wolf & Badger Graduate Design Award for Fashion.


Katie is a designer, illustrator and maker, using drawing to develop and inform silhouette and print. 

“I take a lot of inspiration from abandoned landscapes, architecture and photography. I find derelict and abandoned space particularly interesting and a lot of my prints are as a result of trying to distort or decompose materials. My collections tend to be based on mood. The atmosphere or the feeling of a particular location, image or piece of writing can start the creative process”.
