Presenting a vibrant capsule collection of stunning handmade hats, Kate Langrish impressed the acclaimed judges, including Justin Smith and Edwina Ibbotson, with her decadent Victoriana themed Steam Punk collection.
The collection looked into the licentiousness and spirtuality that Victorian society gravitated towards, the fascination with the asteral, the symbolic and the phantasmal; the curiosity with the darker side of mystic allegory, and the escapism sought in opium dens. The obsession with functionality, inventivness, human progress and advancment, through the explosive arrival of the industrial revolution.
The collection highlighted the designer’s assured technical skills and unique imagination. All echo the strong vintage styling and inspiration which remains true to the designers ethos; that of creating contemporary headwear for the daring & stylish fashion-loving lady or gent.
This exclusive collection is handmade to order in London.
