Kitty Joseph’s work explores colour and its application on the body through print. On graduation from the Royal College of Art in 2011, she collaborated on projects with milliner Piers Atkinson, long-time mentor and friend, fashion icon Zandra Rhodes, stylist Kim Howells, Lady Gaga, and Carine Roitfeld, amongst others. This was followed by the launch of her own ready-to-wear womenswear label. Several collections on, the brand has grown to acquire many influential stockists worldwide, including Colette in Paris, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and Liger in Hong Kong, amongst others.
Kitty Joseph's signature minimalist shapes evolve each season as a highly wearable canvas for textile concepts.. F/W 2016-17 is a play on colour interactions inspired by Josef Albers's Bauhaus studies, expressed with graphic prints including pixelated gradients, stripes and checks. S/S 2017 is about shifting bands of subtle tones, influenced by the nuances and cloud layers of London's sunset. Kitty's favourite materials are smart fabrics, particularly synthetics, developed for sports and utility wear.
She is noted for her versatility, having worked as a colour consultant for international fashion brands, as visiting lecturer in fashion textile and print design in various courses UK wide, and has undertaken colour trend analysis for leading prediction agencies.
