Yesterday it was announced that River Island will be collaborating with Katie Eary on their SS/14 collection. The collection will be in stores from February 17th (put this in your diaries coz it's gonna get whipped up quickly!) I thought this would be a nice opportunity to get to know Katie before her collection lands.
So, she studied at the Royal College of Art and graduated in 2008. Initially, she only designed menswear (where her creativity was more noticable) but 2013 saw her venturing into womenswear with the same enthusiasm - aka crazy amazing designs!

Six years ago Katie was a poor graduate, queuing for her dole money every two weeks and struggling to pay off her student debts. Now she's an established British designer and very much in demand for various collaboration projects. She's friends with Kanye West and has dressed Rihanna and Lady Gaga in her bold and unique designs.

So what can we expect from her 18 piece collection for River Island? I'm predicting lot's of textures and patterns possibly in her SS/14 colour of choice - coral? In previous interviews, Katie has shown a lot of interest in designing swimwear collections in future which I think would be amazing for River Island! I'm also hoping for some skateboards!
