An alumna of the University of Westminster and one of the flock of influential fashion players to emerge out of east London’s 1990s creative scene, Katie’s superlative knowledge of accessories and exhaustive pursuit of the perfect handbag has made her the go-to-girl for ultra-desirable accessories. Thanks to her, “The Harper”, “The Hobo” and “The Savoy” have become part of the fashion lexicon and continue to be among the world’s bestsellers. Katie lives in Marylebone with her boyfriend the tailor, businessman and TV pin-up Patrick Grant.
