Ekaterina Malysheva founded EKAT in the summer of 2013, after a life-changing trip to Burning Man Festival, a festival fuelled by solidarity, art, independence and free spirits. She was keen to start a movement with her fun, colourful EKATsuits. On her return to London, Kat began designing her prints that are influenced by her muse; a woman who is empowered, a freethinker who is confident, ambitious and inspired, but not lead, by fashion. The Katsuit is a perfect amalgamation of all of this.
Katya herself has never been a follower of trends; she grew up in contrasting surroundings, a keen traveller, who loves meeting remarkable people and experiencing culturally abundant places. Her experiences proved that fashion was a boundless, exciting way of expressing oneself.
Fans of EKAT include Sienna Miller, Poppy Delevingne, Rita Ora, Clara Paget, Ella Eyre and Anabel Englund. Her eye-catching designs have graced the pages of key online and print titles including Grazia, Look, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and InStyle to name a few.
