“I create luxurious accessories for Clients who desire modern elegance in their lives”
“I have always wanted to work in fashion on my own terms" says designer Katty Janneh She discovered a millinery course at the local college, and she signed up on the spot to boost her portfolio for University. It worked.
After studying Fashion & Textiles, Katty realised she preferred creating hats more, and decided to specialise. "I find Hat making more creative and relaxing to create and funnily enough, less restrictive, although the only place for it is on a head!" She completed further study at Kensington & Chelsea College and an internship at Stephen Jones, working in the model millinery & ready-to-wear departments.
“I am not trying to be avant guard with my work” says Katty “I want to create distinctive pieces with a strong design element but are still really wearable”.
It is the process of starting with flat, raw materials and transforming them into beautiful pieces that I enjoy, sourcing quirky fabrics & trims to work with. Though the millinery market has renewed itself and is growing, there is still a gap for shapes with strong design elements, with wearability.
She likes to use different finds in her work from old jewellery to vintage laces & button combined with her love of colour and old school Hollywood glamour. “I loved that time when every time you were going out was an occasion.
Katty decided to restructure,embracing her Fashion & Textile roots with a new line of soft hats for Men & Women and printed scarves, to launch later this year.
The mission is to become the next big British Designer Accessories brand, Katty Janneh.
