Interview with Kate Garey l Owner/Designer of KateGarey.com


1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
My brand came about quite organically and it’s hard to pin point specific inspirations as there are so many. I really enjoy using retro prints like polka dots and stripes to be the back drop for my designs. I try to stick to a theme for each collection but I try and let ideas come to me naturally. Business peeps wise I was really in awe of brands like Lulu Guinness and Cath Kidston and I love illustrators Kate Sutton & Gemma Correll. Really there are so many inspiring business, creative and crafty women out there I feel I am in good company and am inspired by them all every day. Design wise I look to nature, animals and retro feel.
2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
It’s lovely being able to be creative each day. To listen to music as loud as you like while you are working. Meeting fellow creatives for coffee & a chat. Getting all excited each time one of your new designs comes to life. Ultimately being your own boss.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
I think my proudest moment is yet to come. There is a lot I want to do still so I'm looking forward to doing them. I'm proud to have started and grown my own business on my own without really knowing what I was doing. It’s a brave thing to make dreams a reality. I also get a nice buzz when I get some press in a magazine or paper, It’s weird seeing your name in print.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
Oooh that's a mystery! I’d really like to keep growing, spreading the word about my little business. There are more products I’d like to try and do but for now I'm concentrating on the handbags & accessories.

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
Be brave, take the leap. 

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
I love the Mr Sausage Dog Day Bag but I'm excited about my A/W collection coming out in September. I can’t decide between The Dapper doctors bag or the Mad Legs Luxx Bag.
