ABOUT



Lead designer and business owner, Kate Gardham, has had the privilege of being on the cutting edge of fashion and interior design in both the U.K. and N.Z. She started out with a Diploma of Fashion, Design, and Construction, which enabled her to hone her innate talents and passion for fabrics, texture, and colour. She immediately secured a coveted position with Trelise Cooper, an internationally renowned fashion house.

Kate travelled to London to work as a fashion accessories supplier to high-street brands throughout the U.K. The grandeur of the historical architecture found throughout Europe inspired her to attain yet another Diploma, this time specialising in Interior Design.

Kate’s clients will attest to her superior skill at transforming areas into aesthetically appealing spaces that engage the senses while catering to individual tastes and functional needs. Her portfolio showcases her eye for detail and authenticity.

She skilfully layers colours, patterns and textures to create unique, harmonious spaces which suit the needs and personalities of her clients. Kate describes her style as a mix of industrial, Scandinavian, vintage and contemporary. “I think it makes a space more interesting if you mix and blend old and new pieces together”.

Kate Gardham has always been passionate about design, fabrics, texture and colour. After completing a Diploma of Fashion, Design and Construction, she worked in a fashion house with Trelise Cooper, then had an opportunity to assist in managing a street wear fashion label whilst working as a designer.
