Caterina Schmitt

"Caterina Schmitt is freelance fashion and costume designer based in London with a BA (Hons) Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear at London College of Fashion.

With a background in Italian haute couture, graphic design and stage drama, Caterina Schmitt's work is a bold and time-consuming mixture of aesthetical obsessions which fire her up.

Good examples of works which represent her well are: Peek-a-boo & Kicking Curves S/S14 - a sexy-kitsch eveningwear collection for the glamourous plus sized woman in full Jean Paul Gaultier style, The Land of the Forever Fragile A/W13 - a sleepwear range based in-depth identity study on a self-harmer teenager, and her graduate collection Mortparfaite A/W15 - a transgressive haute couture collection of statement pieces, which questions the usage of beautified violent content in advertisement and, more broadly, the perverse pleasure humanity derives from turning violence into entertainment. .

She can offer an exceptional aesthetic sense, an innovative approach to design, first-rate technical skills as a pattern cutter and seamstress, and enthusiasm for teamwork.

Caterina Schmitt is the founder of KRAKEN FASHION, her own fashion line, freelances for many fashion companies and offers a bespoke fashion service for private costumers. "
