Katharina Lou was born out of wanting to create a positive impact in the fashion industry, where authenticity, transparency and craftsmanship are at the forefront of every project. I have always found comfort in wearing beautifully crafted pieces that make me feel inspired, confident and supported - like your best friend. Katharina Lou and the community I hope to continue building are exactly that. She’s there for you when you need her most, inspired by the people in my life, who have shaped and supported me. What you wear for the heartbreak, the career successes, the highs and the lows. I hope to dress my mum, my best friend, the person next door and the kind stranger, to make them feel empowered and confident in whatever they do.


As a designer and contributor in this industry, I'm ever conscious of my impact. Prioritising transparency and authenticity in everything I do is key to my personal values and brand. I proudly believe in honest conversations and virtually inviting my community into my studio to see how much it really costs to run a slow fashion label, what conscious waste looks like and how best to minimise it - as best I can. Creating a community and platform for education, shared passion and extravagance is at the core of my label and will always be my priority over consumerism. My hope is to continue designing and making pieces that make people feel empowered, loved, fabulous and heard.
