Our Brand

Symbolic, narrative and explosive by nature, Fate Rising blends conceptual fine art with exquisite materials and artesian craftsmanship to create highly personal and collectable  garments to cherish for a lifetime. 

Capturing the awareness through storytelling and conceptual motifs, Fate Rising garments tell the story of our times - in a way not dissimilar from the Bayeux Tapestry or war rugs from Afghanistan. 

Each textile design is hand drawn and produced for each garment using methods ranging from eco-friendly digital and screen printing, to beading, foiling and embroidery. Textiles and garments are designed in-house, and our collections are British made with minimal waste, using ethical, sustainable and artesian processes. 

Fate's passion for the arts began as a yearning to share a way of being and she is naturally drawn to the inner workings of the human experience.

As an artist and designer she combines storytelling and societal awareness with her interests in culture and pro-positive action.

While acknowledging the world for what it is, she seeks to document the trials and tribulations of the inner world in relationship to the lives we lead, while promoting true lionhearted, Romantic-Realist ideals and values. 

Finding holiness in all that she encounters, Fate tells the story of the demons we fight within ourselves, the challenges of being human, and the potential inherent within each one of us.
