Katya Komarova was born and raised in Russia. After graduating from Moscow State University of Culture and Arts with a degree in acting, Katya began her fashion career as a model.
In 2011, Katya established her first label byMosquito creating handmade leather bags and accessories. During her study in Florence, at Accademia Riaci, where she studied Bag Design, Katya presented her handbags collection at Mercedes-Benz Russian Fashion Week in October 2012.
The brand Katya Komarova was launched in 2014 in Adelaide, presenting limited edition capsule collections.
Katya Komarova collection is defined by the use of sustainable materials such as vegetable tanned leather and cotton. Traditional Italian techniques meet the modern approach and the experimental spirit. Each piece expresses Katya’s love for geometry. Her designs are inspired by her Russian roots and years in the fashion industry.
The collection features stylish, wearable silhouettes and timeless accessories.
Katya takes a new direction of craftsmanship and creates stitchless accessories. Simple yet very detailed and unique constructions are decorated with gathering and metal rivets. Rough vegetable tanned leather and delicate suede and cotton create a beautiful contrast between power and tenderness.
Refreshing and bold, the brand sets the stage for a new wave of chic.
