Find out why Marks is the toast of the international fashion community

Kat Marks is no ordinary designer. She works with leather, PVC, plastics and textiles to create work that is inventive and unique. Her work has been featured in magazines including W, i-D, Glamour and Fashion magazines.

Marks has worked with photographer Nick Knight of SHOWstudio. And, in 2009, she was awarded an International Design Award for her collection The Braces.

Marks launched her e-boutique in 2013 where she sells jewellery and hats that are wearable art. All of her creations can be customized.

Here are 5 standout pieces by Marks with photographs featuring model Everline Aboka.

The Dyad Neck Cuff

This bold hand-dyed leather neck cuff is reminiscent of a gladiator goddess and can be worn casually or dressy.

The Dyad Shoulder Harness

The Dyad shoulder harness is an edgy runway-inspired piece that might be the perfect pairing to your little black dress.

Carp Armour Ring

The Carp Armour Ring is crafted from fish leather and is available in both black and multiple colour variations that are stunning for any season and occasion.

Patent Leather Double Cuff and Bondage Cuff

These two pieces are part of Marks’ new Warrior collection.

Patent Leather Harness

Pair the cuffs with the patent leather harness (all shown above) to really amp up your style. This piece defines the waist and adds amazing architecture to create a fashion-forward and unique look.
