Designer and Illustrator Kate Moross at Top Shop
If you haven’t heard of her, its looking like you soon will. Kate Moross, is a graphic designer and illustrator who was chosen as one of Creative Review magazine’s recent “Creative Futures”.
Although her work is pretty distinctive, I wouldn’t name it as one of the styles I favour. But I do like the “whole package” – that she has been able to transcend the sometimes-insider industry that is design, to launch a signature range of clothing for the popular Topshop clothing brand.
In the collection, she has six jersey pieces adorned with bright, psychedelic graphics that are hand drawn by Moross using Lettraset markers.
“Topshop have given me the creative freedom and scope to produce something exciting, for a brand new audience,” she says.
Having graphics on clothing is one thing, but to have Topshop also launching her work with a live art event is another.
On Friday 25th January, Moross was in one of the windows of Topshop’s Oxford Circus flagship store in the heart of London, creating what would amount to Topshop’s first live art installation. The event was filmed live by topshop.com and broadcast via a podcast. The end result, judging by Moross’ back catalogue of work, will be an eye-popping window display of hand drawn, colourful graphics.
