This is one of our favourite parts of the podcast. It’s when we talk to some extraordinary guests and colour experts. First up? All-inclusive fashion designer, Kitty Joseph.
Who is Kitty Joseph?
Kitty is a Print and Textile Designer with her own clothing label. But to us, she’s one of the most amazing women we’ve had the pleasure of speaking to. Kitty is a very colourful designer – joy simply bursts from her designs!
So, we couldn’t wait to ask her a few questions…
What do you find so satisfying about colour?
Kitty works with bright, uplifting colours, as she believes they can act as a tool to help you thrive in life.
“I find myself on a constant journey of endless discovery”
What do you think about the red colour palette?
Kitty answers this with a quote from Derek Jarman:
“Red protects itself. No colour is as territorial. It states a claim, is on the alert against the spectrum.”
And another from Josef Albers:
“If one says ‘Red’ – the name of the colour – and there are 50 people listening, it can be expected that there will be 50 reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different”.
What’s your top colour tip?
When asked what people should do if they’re scared to make bolder colour choices in fashion, Kitty believes that if you love it – get it! Don't worry what anyone else thinks. We couldn’t agree more.
Which colour would you take with you on a desert island?
We put Kitty on the spot with this one (sorry, Kitty!). She went for Cobalt Blue. Before finishing our lovely chat, with an absolutely delightful comment...
“We need a full range of colours in our life the same way that we need a balance of vitamins”
