Award winning textile designer, Katie Brown specialises in creating prints and patterns for fashion and interiors. She is expert in traditional screen-printing methods using bespoke dyes, as well as state-of-the-art digital design and printing. The designer is available for commissions and also creates a range of luxury silk scarves.
Katie Brown’s signature patterns are inspired by the industrial, urban landscape. Using imagery that most would deem ugly, the designer transforms these hard-edged sources through intricate pattern, stunning colour palettes and soft, draping silks to create a beautiful piece of fabric.
She relishes the challenge of altering the perception of the imagery she uses, daring her customer to wear a scarf adorned with barbed wire.
The current collection from Katie Brown stems from the skeletal skyline of the shipyards in her home city of Belfast.
Katie Brown was supported by Craft NI through their making it ’11 programme.
