Being a fan of silks and all things silky and luxurious, it was no surprise that this designer caught my eye at the London Fashion Week Designer Showrooms.
After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, Belgian designer Katrien Van Hecke has not failed to impressed. After working for the likes of Hussein Chalayan, she has gained her fashion stripes good and proper and has propelled herself onto the London fashion scene. Her speciality? Organic hand-dyed silk dresses and tees. Paint speckles and fluid marble, these artistic pieces are one of a kind with a good splash of luxury just for good measure.
When designing, Van Hecke has a certain woman in mind, someone who has their own creative mind and someone who seeks handicraft, quality and uniqueness when looking for new designs to add to their beautifully eclectic wardrobe.
