Katherine Hamnett (b. 1948) is an English designer who began her career after graduating from art school in 1970. She started her own label in 1979. Many of her designs are based on the work clothing from different cultures. In 1982 she first designed a line of t-shirts printed with large political slogans and which she called “Choose Life”.
Hamnett continues to design, to work for the improvement of the environment, and to work for political causes.
