From circular fashion to High Street hell: Navigating UK Manufacturing with Kate Hills (#143)

Get ready to dive into the dynamic world of UK manufacturing as we jet back to the UK for a lively chat with Kate Hills. Kate takes us on a whirlwind journey through her fascinating career path, from pioneering circular fashion fresh out of college to designing quirky kids’ clothing. We’ll follow her adventures to Italy, where she crafted designs for Levi’s while indulging in pizza, and then to the bustling halls of Burberry before navigating the twists and turns of the High Street fashion scene. Hold onto your seats as we explore Kate’s resilient pivot into her current venture, championing brands and makers committed to the UK manufacturing landscape.
