katie witham intro

Now here is a designer that makes a statement with yarn. For her graduation in 2013 Katie Witham took inspiration from body image and all the things we do to our body to meet the latest demands.

Her knits are bright and beautiful, the shapes are odd and challenging. Big red boob bags hang out from a blue jacquard sweater and big belly bulbs make the silhouette for a knitted dress. Katie studied body building, dieting, scarification and cosmetic surgery to come up with these shapes. Not for all, but I think it looks bloody brilliant!
