FW Part 4: Kathryn Blackmore


In each of these interviews I've had an incredibly difficult time picking pictorial accompaniment as all of these ladies have an abundance of inspiring images. It was exceptionally hard for me to not post Kathryn's entire flickr collection! Kathryn Blackmore is a designer, illustrator and purveyor of the most delicious looking jewelry I've ever seen! She is most certainly one to keep a close eye on. 

1. What was your first fashion-related creation?

Back in my school days, I made a full-length dress consisting of leather panels and a handwoven bodice. Back then I thought it was great, although thinking about it now it was truly awful.



2. What or Who inspires you?

I find Alber Elbaz inspiring both as a designer and an individual.

The inspiration for my work depends on my mood, although I can always rely on natural history, traditional crafts and a personal collection of vintage finds.

Lately I have been finding inspiration in the form of medieval imagery, dreamy landscapes and Baroque art.


3. Biggest sartorial blunder?

Oh dear, I think a recurring sartorial blunder is over wearing my clothes. I have a habit of growing attached to items until they fall apart!


4. If you had to have a uniform for this season what would it look like?

I’d be very happy in a uniform of button-down shirts, preferably in silk, paired with slim-cut trousers, lace-up boots and one of the vintage mesh collars I scored this summer.



5. Any words of wisdom for people wishing to follow in your footsteps?

For anyone who has been thinking about setting up a blog or business, what are you waiting for? Making plans is great. Putting them into action is so much better!
