About Kathleen

I fell in love with fashion and design when I was 10. My grandmother was a seamstress. She crafted the most amazing, intricate wedding gowns. I was fascinated by the process.

I became her shadow and she taught me so much. Dedication. Hard work. Respect for craftsmanship. I've come a long way, but this foundation is critical in how I handle myself and my profession.

I've worked as senior designer at several large fashion brands, and although it's creative work, with United By Form I want to create something new and not be restricted in any way.

United By Form

I believe mixing materials and form together creates beauty. United By Form is an ever-evolving line of modern home goods, apparel, jewelry and accessories.

Many of my items are handmade in my studio in Glassell Park, Los Angeles.
