Born in Ireland, raised in South Africa and inspired by living in London and Hong Kong; Catherine’s designs take cultural references from her nomadic lifestyle and her passion for long forgotten craft techniques and femininity. Traditional techniques with a modernist twist of simplicity form the foundation of Catherine’s work and are fuelled by the continual search for new methods from around the world.
Juxtaposition plays an important part in the aesthetic of Catherine’s designs. Between textile and craft, strength and fragility and old meets new, there is consistent balance drawn in all that she creates; every Ying has a Yang.
With distribution in 23 countries and online stores across the UK, Europe, USA and Asia; Catherine Deane’s Bridal and Ready-to-Wear brand has blossomed into a global luxury brand.
