Katie Pollard is a costume designer and founder of Azimuth Clothing. Her work explores identity creation, transformation, and the conversation between the body, garment, and society.
AZIMUTH CLOTHING creates one-of-a-kind garments with intention, imbued with historical reference and symbology.
Informed by a dark, dynamic aesthetic with a focus on juxtaposition- the balance between the opulent and primitive, sacred and mundane- the designs are realized with an emphasis on found and reclaimed materials, believing that utilizing items in existence supports two interlocking aims- promoting sustainability by reducing production, and drawing on the transformative process of regeneration. A belief in the construction process as an essential design element requires that the much of her work be done by hand.
Custom work available.
