As London-based designer, Katie Eary launches her first womenswear collection, teaming up with Cartoon Network for an amazing new range for A/W 2018.
Driven by subculture and unabashed bold colours and prints, Katie Eary's designs stand out with vibrant eye popping prints, and subversive silhouettes, inspired by alt couture. What better a fit for her debut womenswear collection than the iconic superhero sisters, The Powerpuff Girls. Shaping a collection that celebrates diversity, breaking down gender stereotypes with designs that take on elements of their iconic style, perfectly matched with Katie Eary's own signature look.
Launching her forthcoming A/W 2018 range on the eve of London Fashion Week with a showcase at at London Mayfair's Maddox Gallery, paying homage to girl power with a fully 'Powerpuffed' backdrop and an all-girl skateboarding squad, wearing pieces from the new collection.
Comprised of 15 signature pieces, The Powerpuff Girls collection includes tops, sweatshirts, dresses, and trousers, as well as a "mini-me" range for powerful women and aspiring young girls. Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the iconic show, and it's message of empowerment - making a perfect fit for Katie Eary's debut womenswear range.
"I'm a big fan of The Powerpuff Girls and I was so excited to partner with Cartoon Network for my debut womenswear collection at London Fashion Week. I wanted to take the three superhero sisters with me into a new era of female empowerment. My collection celebrates diversity and breaking down gender stereotypes, so I've combined my signature prints with luxe materials to signify boldness and grace. I hope my collection truly inspires a new generation of young women to feel empowered." says Katie Eary of the forthcoming collection.
