Romantic, detailed and elegant, every piece of Portland-based designer Kate Towers is inimitably precious.

Inspired by nature and romance, self taught through experimentation, an artists vision, and hands on execution, Kate Towers creates non-seasonal, one of a kind pieces. We get up close and personal.

Tell us a little about yourself.
i live in portland, with my husband, and 2 year old daughter - really, this is how i spend most of my time - running around with her! i used to own a clothing store (for about 8 years) but when i had my daughter i wanted to be able to raise her full time and just concentrate on my designs. its been a huge adjustment and one of the hardest things is not having much time to create. i have to say no to a lot of people wanting special orders - or stores who want to sell my things. sometimes i really miss being able to work whenever i want but i wouldnt give up these precious few days while my daughter is young for anything!

Who would you most like to see wearing your work?
anyone who loves it. its also nice when i know someone will be wearing one of my pieces to an event - so i get to show it off a little!

What motivates you?
A lack of time. sometimes i feel desperate to work in my studio. having a fashion show on the horizon, a little bit of pressure to rise to the occasion.
