ROBERTS | WOOD is a luxury concept brand founded by Katie Roberts-Wood following her graduation from the Royal College of Art. Her Masters collection, ‘SYNCH’, was awarded the International Talent Support ‘Collection of the Year Award’ as well as the Vogue Talents Award for the designer’s innovative techniques which question the basic fundamentals of construction.
Katie presented her first collection during London Fashion Week 2015, after winning the Fashion Scout Merit Award, establishing the brand’s ethereal yet bold aesthetic. Following its debut, the brand was picked up by Dover Street Market in London, New York and Tokyo and has shown on schedule at London Fashion Week since September 2016.
For ROBERTS | WOOD, a collection represents a crystallised moment in an evolutionary design process; a pause in the continual exploration of textiles, construction and silhouette. Drawing on themes of repetition, nature and mathematical patterns; the aesthetic is instinctively beautiful yet chaotic and at times unreal. The brand represents a determined femininity that blends tactile poetry and dreamlike curiosity with structure, strength and form.
