"Sarabande has been instrumental in allowing me the opportunity to focus the direction of my practice though a unique combination of guidance and support, as well as being in the eclectic and inspiring interdisciplinary setting of the studios."
Katie Roberts-Wood is the British designer behind the brand ROBERTS | WOOD. Prior to starting the brand, she completed a Medical Degree at the University of Glasgow. Katie's desire to design led her to undertake a Master’s degree in Womenswear at the Royal College of Art in London, where she graduated in 2014. Katie started ROBERTS | WOOD in 2015 and it is now stocked internationally in stores including Dover Street Market, Selfridges and Galaries Lafayette. Katie's work focuses on new ways of constructing garments without stitching, as well as using inventive pattern cutting techniques to create a unique structure and silhouette. It is her fascination with form, patterns and repetition in nature that drives her creative direction. Through this process of making she has created an aesthetic that is beautiful yet chaotic and at times, unreal.
