Kirsty Ward’s aesthetic celebrates bold cuts, defined structures and powerful embellishment. Originally from Oxfordshire she completed her BA in Womenswear in Manchester before going on to undertake the MA Womenswear course at Central Saint Martins.
It was there that she began to develop her penchant for unconventional structures and an emphasis on form. Graduating with a distinction she was quickly snapped up by the Alberta Ferretti design team in Italy. After a year and a half honing her craft with Ferretti, Kirsty Ward launched her eponymous label in 2010.
A merging of jewelry and clothing are at the core of Kirsty Ward’s minimal meets maximal collections. Materials are varied and often rely on an element of contradiction. This merging of contrasting yet complementary elements is key to the eclectic nature of Kirsty Ward’s designs.
