My Bio
My name is Kato.

I was born and raised in Wales, UK, and emigrated to America in 2007.

I decided to house my designs under the name SteampunkCouture in 2005 after a friend introduced me to the term "steampunk" when describing the way I dressed, my style of illustration and most importantly, the couture clothing that I was making for a small number of clients from my kitchen table.

Six years on, the business operates out of Hollywood and Portland and I'm able to employ one very talented seamstress, an in-house photographer and a brilliant customer service, packer and shipper to work alongside me.

I'm something of a workaholic hermit, fabric-junky and at times, a total geek. Easily entertained by life's little things and happiest when I find myself in complete solitude with the freedom to create.

Life is about creating and following your dreams. If you ruthlessly pursue that which you feel most passionately about, you'll find that doors will open for you.

Esty Re-opens!
