Vibrant, fun and full of energy – that’s how I would describe the wonderful Kate Austin. That’s also exactly how I would describe her designs!

Kate works with skilled, passionate fair-trade artisans in Jaipur, Rajastan, India who take her designs and create fabulous block prints with earth-friendly dye, by hand, on organic fabric. Her creations are kind to the Earth AND to the people who help make them come to life!

Last summer, I worked with Kate and a group of fabulous models to create a lookbook of her collection of kimonos, tunics, and sarongs. To date, it is definitely one of my most¬†favourite¬†photoshoots I’ve ever worked on! It’s such an amazing experience working with like-minded individuals who are genuinely passionate about the product – which in this case was ethical fashion.

Below are a few of my favourite shots from our shoot.
