Katya has a unique insight into the business of fashion, starting her career as a model in her home town of Moscow, Russia. Travelling as a model, Katya had the opportunity to experience the world including a trip to Thailand in 2010 which changed her life and led her to start her own label which evolved into what it is today after moving to Australia.
Adelaide’s favourite leather goods labelKatya Komarovahas added a range of bold new styles to its collection in both leather and cotton. Katya founded her eponymous label in 2014, maintaining a strong focus on luxury, customisation and versatility, reflected still in the brand today.
Tensile explores the versatility of Katya Komarova designs through colours, body language and bold statements. With an ability to transform an outfit, accessories bring a sense of character, and can easily be interchanged to achieve a desired look. Tensile shows how the presence of belts and bags work to unite the contrasts of classic and modern elements for the everyday.
