Kirsty Ward has been making an impression on the fashion community’s most influential figures for years, and even more so since the launch of her self titled label in 2010.
Originally from Oxfordshire, an hour outside of London, Kirsty received a BA in Womenswear in Manchester and went onto Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design where she completed their distinguished MA Womenswear course.
With a reputation for pushing the boundaries in art and design, Kirsty came out of CSM with an affinity for bold cuts, avant-garde structures and strong accessories.
Right out of school, Kirsty spent a year and a half working under the legendary Alberta Ferretti, where she was able to sharpen her skills and solidify her point of view. Evident in her Autumn/Winter 2012-13 collection is her striking combination of jewelry and clothing, which she has become known for.
