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.
