I’m Kate. The owner & designer of KATE&FRANCES. I love to know the reasons why we all do, what we do. it allows another perspective, another viewpoint into our Self.
I appreciate self expression, identity and my mission with this brand is not only to make apparel that makes you feel good and look amazing, but to provide a voice, a platform and representation of Brown folks within the fashion industry. being of Trinidadian and New Zealand heritage, and growing up in New Zealand (THE most beautiful country on this planet!), I didn’t have Brown role models, who looked like me, to inspire me to, but I was lucky enough to have parents that supported me in whatever career I chose.
Our garments are designed and manufactured in Vancouver, Canada. we hand cut and produce in small batches, so each piece is individually crafted.
clothing is a tool we use everyday to create our own identity, which in turns shows what we represent and helps us to connect to our beliefs and to those around us
