With sophisticated and contemporary designs that combine high street tailoring with edgy street wear influences, Jo and Katy’s backgrounds in fine arts, fashion and graphic design can be seen throughout the unique garments. Their latest Autumn/Winter collection TWO showcases wearable sleek lines and tampering in a muted colour palette.
