Cat O’Brien is a brand that has stemmed from a lifelong attraction to British Historical clothing and displays of grandeur through dress, combined with an inherent draw to all things costume, be that Monarchical or Halloween.
The designs draw on a combination of classic clothing references and close attention to period details, alongside humorous twists. While Cat’s personal passions in social and wider ecological World issues drive her, it is always presented in her work through a comedic lens, as she aims to create the clothes she feels have been missing from her life.
Cat O’Brien aims to create pieces you’ll want to invest in and keep, in the knowledge you have purchased something created in the most mindful way possible. All pieces are designed and made in house by a small team of wonderful women in their Brighton studio.
