I am illustrated Kat, a designer who creates bespoke, hand drawn fabrics with a contemporary, botanical style. The limited edition fabrics are carefully made into cushions and lampshades, adding bold colour to interior spaces. My fabrics hold beautiful detail, showing each individual plant and exploring nature within different environments.
After graduating from the University of Portsmouth with a First Class Degree in Illustration BA(Hons), I am aiming to launch a product range. With limited collections of cushions and lampshades, customers will be purchasing very unique items for their homes. This makes my products different from what is currently on the market as I hand design the fabrics myself and the whole process is finished by me. I can also fulfil commissions to customers specifications of colour, plants ect.
My business idea would be suitable for somewhere like Liberties which I dream of approaching once I have some experience with clients. First, with the money I raise, I want to create stock to try and get into local, independent shops and sell online. I also want to take my products to New Designers next summer in London! This costs £500 without travel expenses and stock production.
Its going to be a long and expensive journey but I am excited and 100% committed to creating a successful business. Any support would be extremely appreciated. Thank you!
