Kate Hasted is a British fashion print designer, whose unique hand created textile prints have featured in fashion collections and shows in London, New York and Japan. Since 2002 her hand created textiles have sold to leading fashion houses including Donna Karan, DVF, Jones New York, Calvin Klein and Rebecca Minkoff to name a few.
Since graduating in 2002 in Printed Textile Design from the University of Creative Arts Kate has developed her hand printing techniques, specialising in hand marbled designs that are inspired by her travels across Europe and South East Asia. Her use of Digital printing techniques enables her to experiment with repeat design, vivid colours and bold patterns on large silk surfaces.
In Spring 2011 Kate launched her own fashion accessories range under her Kate Hasted label. Her accessories have exhibited in galleries and events, both in the UK and internationally, including The Guildhall Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield, Farnham Maltings and the Hankyu British Fair's in Osaka, Japan. In 2016 Kate worked with The National Portrait Gallery in London to create a unique necklace and bracelet design for their Picasso Portraits exhibition.
