Philosophy

COMFORT and STYLE

Comfortable, stylish, easy and flattering.
The best clothes for travelling.

The Kathleen Berney label

“What shall I wear?” How much time do we all spend with this question!

I hear over and over again from our customers that their Kathleen Berney clothes are the most comfortable, easy and stylish clothes to wear. So I am inspired by what I hear.

I am a baby boomer and baby boomers are my target market. I design for our age group. We want to be comfortable, stylish and cover the bumps and lumps.

Obviously other ages wear the label too : my daughter wears plenty from my collections over the years. She too wears Kathleen Berney for travel.

Sizes are from S – XXXL

The label is designed and made in Australia and has been around for 20years.

Travel Clothes

Again and again I hear from customers that Kathleen Berney clothes are the best clothes for travel. The crushed, comfortable fabric will look the same when you arrive at your destination as when you board the plane. Just cold wash, squeeze, wrap in towel to remove excess moisture, then hang over a chair or over shower rail to dry and they ready to wear the next day.

About Kathleen

Since the mid 1990’s I have been designing and working from my rural studio on our family property on the outskirts of Sydney.

Life has an unexpected way of unfolding. I worked as a textile artist for many years before the fashion label evolved. I did not sit down and decide that I want to be a fashion designer..it evolved out of my many years working with fabric and exhibiting in galleries around Australia and teaching batik and textile dyeing.

I am still doing some one off experimental wall pieces and some other crazy things such as having a sculpture in Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi, 2015.

My son Julian, during his long road since having a stroke in 2006, makes a range of elegant and unique scarves using off cuts, left over and sampling fabrics from the Kathleen Berney label.
