Coming from a fine art background, Keren has always been interested in using a variety of media to express her vision. After graduating from her BA degree in Fashion Design and Technology at the London College of Fashion in 2005, Keren worked with London based designers Louis De-Gama and Aluma Klein, where she gained valuable experience in the creative and production elements of building a successful brand.
She launched her own label, ‘K.Brat’, in 2008 where she created collections of accessories and womenswear, continuing to exhibit bi-annually during both the Paris and London Fashion Weeks. Her work often places emphasis on the traditional leather crafting techniques she studied in the Indian Himalayas. Her label focuses on leather accessories as well as leisure womenswear, combining sculptural structured pieces with high-quality, soft separates and outerwear. She also works on custom-made pieces using printmaking and laser cutting. In addition to her collections, Keren takes on commissions from private clients, designing custom-made pieces and accessories for special events.
The majority of her materials are sourced in the UK and all garments are produced by local artisans in accordance with the values and the ethical responsibility of her label. Keren’s designs and vision are deeply influenced by her interest in tribal customs and cultural art forms worldwide, combining her two greatest passions of fashion and anthropology. Her designs are daring with an edgy twist, unique yet practical, combining a rock ‘n’ roll attitude with effortless sophistication.
Keren joined the fashion team at Morley College in September 2013 and is teaching a range of courses including pattern cutting and Designer Bags and Handbags.
