Kato is a UK-born model and designer. She’s certainly lovely, but moreso than being another pretty face, I chose her for her unique design sense. The creative force behind the recently-featured brand, Steampunk Couture, Kato produces hand-made neo-Victorian clothing and accessories. Up until just recently the brand was a one-woman operation, with Kato running the company and producing each piece on her own.
Besides clothing design, Kato’s also an illustrator. As you can see, her clothing and artwork sort of go hand-in-hand. Check out Kato’s site for her art portfolio, custom design work, and a Steampunk Couture retrospective.
