OUR FOUNDER

Born in Canada to a Ukrainian mother and Polish father, Katie was raised by a simple ethos: never be wasteful or superfluous. This would become one of the guiding principles of Silk Laundry, which she founded in 2015. After migrating to Australia in her youth to study psychology, Katie launched Silk Laundry out of the need for simple, well-made clothing that utilised natural fibers and would pair with pieces she already owned. Obsessed with slip dresses from her teen years in the 90s, Katie launched the brand with the now iconic 90s Slip Dress.

Choosing silk for its durability and natural lifecycle, Katie wanted to create a brand that combined conscious living with luxury staples. Each garment is made with artisanal craftsmanship, innovative design, and fabrics that take into consideration the impact of materials on our planet. Harnessing her intuition, ethics, and values, Katie ushered Silk Laundry into its current iteration. One where the brand is a vehicle for storytelling, where each collection weaves together stories and inspirations from her travels, philanthropy, and advocacy work.

From creative repurposing of materials in Silk Laundry to encouraging others to adopt more sustainable measures in their everyday lives - Katie is always looking for new practices to evolve individually and as a brand. Using fashion as a tool to delve into conversations that matter, Silk Laundry is committed to conservation projects and environmentalism. By creating a brand that uses its voice for the betterment of the planet, Katie is dedicated to the wider community and conscious consumerism. Through this, Silk Laundry is constantly adapting to the needs of our world.
