“An emerging Aberdeen fashion designer has released her latest collection which features chic, minimalist garments.
INCODE, based in Aberdeen, is owned by Ekaterina Kostareva (known as Kate) and specialises in womenswear.
The latest campaign was shot at Stonehaven Harbour and features classic garments with a modern twist, which are easy to wear in the office or outside of work.
The spring/summer 2019 collection has a range of classic slogan t-shirts which are printed locally in Aberdeen and can be styled easily with jeans or party skirts.
Kate said: “I always knew I wanted to work within creative business, but I wasn’t sure what exactly I should do. I am a business analyst by trade. I tried design blogging, fashion journalism and even graphic design. Eventually I decided to take an online course in fashion design. That was back in 2014.
“My first graduation collection ‘The Artist’s Diary’ was inspired by Prince and his story. The main source of inspiration was Prince’s music and lyrics, his personality and performance outfits. I deconstructed the classic sweatshirt, converting it into feminine and desirable outwear with an artistic touch.”
