Katie Ann McGuigan is the winner of Fashion Scout’s Merit Award for AW17. This Westminster grad, with an eye for colour and an uncompromisingly bold aesthetic, is a pretty fierce talent and her show on the 18th Feb is likely to be one of the highlights of Fashion Scout this season.
Katie’s designs are intense, multilayered and satisfying. There’s a duality to her creations that we love – take a quick glance and feel the thrill of a classic silhouette or a mouthwatering pop of electric colour, but look up close and the designs are threaded with intricate and gloriously forward thinking detail, from laser cutting, to vinyl printing. These are pieces with serious depth.
Before her collection hits the catwalk at Fashion Scout, we thought we’d get some insight into how Katie got to this point and who she makes these looks for. We’ve tried to keep the fangirling to a minimum.
