Raised in Atlanta with summers spent in Paris, Katharine Kidd’s formative years laid the groundwork for her line’s feminine tailored designs and intricate detailing. In 2010, Kidd launched her eponymous line, its direction informed by an education rich in period cinema, literature and flirtations with costume design.
Based in Los Angeles, Kidd melds classic feminine silhouettes with her own brand of contemporary styling and standout prints. Kidd’s sculpted dresses have been embraced by Hollywoods’s fashion upstarts, including Rooney Mara, Kate Beckinsale, Lea Michele, Emmy Rossum and Rachel McAdams. With an unconventional entry into the elite designer playground – she is self-taught and served as an apprentice to a veteran couturier – Kidd brings a fresh voice to fashion, one characterized by strict attention to detail and fit.
