“Every collection finds its first few breaths in the fabrics,” says Catherine. “I work with a community of local textile artists who take my initial ideas regarding themes and color, and return with hand-dyed, discharged, painted or surface-treated fabrics of extraordinary beauty. I place no restrictions on their work and the results are inspirational. They also take fabrics I have sourced from mills in France, India or Italy, and transform them, bringing them a whole new level.”
