Get your colours on and mix cute and edgy and join the colour-obsessed party revolution!

Striking Kittens began after I completed fashion school, as much as I am a total shopaholic, the high street fashion was not providing enough variety to satiate my individuality and creativity. So I took matters into my own hands and starting creating new and interesting colourful garments to satisfy my broad and quirky tastes!

My inspiration comes from everywhere, I waste so much time trawling the internet and vintage fashion books for inspiration from the past. I'm inspired by food, events, movies, books, fabrics, art, friends, music and the street. I love the vibrant clubbing and music festival scene and the club-goers enthusiam to push the boundaries of fashion and creativity.

Everything you find for sale at Striking Kittens is thought up inside my little brain, sketched onto a traditional art pad, and then begins life as I wade through my gargantuan fabric stash or fabric stores searching for the perfect fabric. I then create the pattern, I use manual flat pattern-making techniques, to create the perfect pattern.

From there, I spend quality time with my scissors and sewing machine, making sample and sample until the garment fits just right! Finally, I make the final sample (I can't resist making one for myself) and then the completed garment. All from my crazy head to hot little hand!

    I started Striking Kittens after I graduated from fashion school. I felt the variety in the shopping centres to be lacking, so I took it upon myself to change the situation! I love making the world prettier through fashion!

Frequently asked questions

Can you make something from a picture I send?

Sorry, I will not copy another designer's work. It gives me no joy to do so. The final product will never be exactly the same as the image due to availablility of fabrics and differing machine techniques.

Care instructions

My garments are machine washable, however, please use a gentle cycle to do so. For those with decorations such as rhinestones, please use a washbag. Remember to put similar colours together and never wash light colours with dark, especially reds, which are prone to run and stain your wash.Keep items away from abrasive surfaces such as velcros, chains and spikes.
