About

Surname: Clark
First name: Katy
University: Northumbria University
Area of study: Fashion
Year of birth: 1989
Place of residence: Glasgow

I am inspired by… music and films and the mood they evoke. Characters: Tom Waits’ scruffy beatnik to Bowie’s multiple personalities. Menswear. Experimentation with fabric, cut and shape.
My motivation to take part at DfT is… to share my point of view.
My thoughts about Stella McCartney: She cleverly overlaps femininity and masculinity drawing on her Savile Row training. So many different ideas, never predictable.

What I want to express with my design: It’s always about trying to create something new. Taking clothes apart and putting them back together upside down, inside out.
My collection in three words: Lived-in. Unassuming. Vagabond.

My passion outside of fashion: Music.
If I were a fashion piece in 2013, it would be… a jacket I’m working on at the moment. An asymmetrical tailored jacket in a world map fabric.

Designer's message

“Sunday Desperados”

Deconstructivism is the basis of Katy Clark’s collection. Taking clothes apart, combining and draping them in new ways – this is how she created the oversize silhouettes of the outfits. Relaxed and elegant at the same time.
