Client, started by designer Kate Holmes, is a label founded on the reputation and image of the band Client who toured with Depeche Mode and Erasure and have also collaborated with Pete Doherty and Carl Barât formerly from the 'Libertines'.

Client A recalls "I started the lifestyle brand Client as I wanted to turn the UK electronic band, Client, which I co-formed, into a brand. Client, the band, played loud electronica, toured the world and made 4 albums- the first two on Andy Fletcher from Depeche Mode’s label. We wore uniforms on-stage and off-stage and embraced the strictness of the look. We wanted to show that you can wear a uniform and still be edgy.

Their electropop music has been described as a mixture between the Pet Shop Boys and the Human League, with a saucy stage presence and style that is now reflected in the designs by Client.

Clients Clothes have a sense of military chic, fetish and the sexiness of bondage in their 1940s re-makes and designs. Think English spy running down a Berlin alleyway listening to French Techno. Strict and Prim uniforms for day and night.

Combining old and new, Client have created a utilitarian collection of well made and designed coats, dresses, t-shirts and accessories from durable materials entirely Made in Britain.

Client A has put an unmeasurable time and energy into Client and "spent 2 years sourcing all the designs, post-war garments and material in the UK and found a small ethical factory in London to make up my clothes. They are not mass- manufactured and are made to order." Which means that a lot more time and effort is put in to making each dress, coat and outfit fit you perfectly to draw out the femme fatal in uniform.

There is also a line called “remade in Britain”, available through the website which takes original, vintage, post cold war clothes and accessories and re-makes them sustainably with a modern twist.
