Having graduated in 2008 from the Royal College of Art, menswear designer Katie Eary has been making waves lately in the fashion world. Eary's collection, which she identifies as 'street couture', was first selected to be photographed on Kate Moss by Mario Testino. Since then the power of celebrity has played a big part in raising the profile of this new label. Rihanna, Jaden Smith and singer Rita Ora are all self-proclaimed fans of the brand. Ora has been photographed wearing several head-to-toe looks from the designers menswear collections, blurring the lines between masculine and feminine dressing. With collections named things such as, 'Flamingo Massacre' and inventive prints featuring goldfish and lobsters, it is easy to see why Katie Eary is gaining an applauded reputation...and fast.
