Katherine Sheers trained as a textile designer in London and NYC before discovering a love of lingerie. This led her to complete a first class degree in Contour Fashion. Since then, she’s lived and worked as a lingerie designer and trim designer in London, Sri Lanka, NYC, China and Hong Kong.
Following several years focused on designing for mass manufacture, Katherine felt an overwhelming desire to return to the hands-on, making element of design. Her debut book The Secrets of Sewing Lingerie teaches any home-sewer how to make beautiful undergarments and combines her lingerie preoccupation, with a passion for vintage treasures, embellishment and using underwear as a means to nurture positive body image.
Katherine lives in The Black Mountains with her husband and daughter, where she’s taking the first steps towards living a handmade life.
