Katharine Hamnett is mostly famous for her t-shirts with printed statements on them. This was during the 1980s and she was then the most copied designer of all. Copying is the most sincere form of flattery after all, don't you agree. In the 21st century she reintroduced her t-shirts. Perhaps not the huge success it had been back then but still a success.
Katherine Hamnett is a graduate from Central St Martins and she founded her company in 1979. Apart from her t-shirts Hamnett is known for her ethical approach on fashion business. A brave lady and it definitely takes balls standing in front of The Iron Lady in a t-shirt protesting said's politics.
Katherine Hamnett did part of her education in Sweden. In my book that earns her a bunch of brownie points.
