Katie Darlington is an award winning fashion and print designer and the driving force behind the synonymous luxury womenswear label.

Born and raised on the Welsh coast Katie started her career at 19 working for one on the UK's leading bridal designers. Katie moved to London to study fashion and graduated from Kingston University in 2013. Her debut collection 'Collecting sentiment' saw innovative pattern cutting and print design, which won her the Wolf & Badger Graduate Design Award for Fashion.

In 2018 Katie Darlington Bridal was launched, expanding the business to incorporate a line of luxurious, rule breaking bridal gowns for the modern bride.

“My collections tend to be based on mood. The atmosphere or the feeling of a particular location, image or piece of writing can start the creative process. I use sand washed silks, soft chiffons and tulles, and bold, tactile laces to create modern but feminine bridal fashion that creates the magical feeling every bride dreams of for their special day.”
