“Kathryn Bass fell in love with sewing as a girl, under the guidance of her grandmother.”
Her specialties: blankets with pockets.
Even though this idea didn’t catch on, Kathryn’s passion for sewing continued into her teens when she was fortunate enough to have a patient home-ec teacher; someone who tolerated her unique approach to her craft, and encouraged her to apply to fashion schools.
Kathryn first attended the Helen Lefeaux School of Fashion Design, where she learned how to survive on little sleep, turn criticism into creation, and design without limitations. After graduation, Kathryn launched into College Lasalle in Montreal, where she completed another three-year program in fashion design.
As fabulous as Montreal was, Kathryn was not cut out for the cold weather and returned home to Vancouver where she started her fashion career, and Kathryn Bass Bridal.
Kathryn lives in Vancouver with her increasingly supportive husband and two young children.
