Balance is key for design duo
Bolzoni Walsh is a London-based Irish/Italian partnership making cool, clean-lined clothes. Katie Walsh, from Dún Laoghaire, studied fashion at Kingston University in London and following a year’s internship with Alexander McQueen, set up Poltock Walsh in 2006 with a friend. It attracted a cult following, and made the cover of WWD.
Last year Walsh and her husband Simon Bolzoni started Bolzoni Walsh. “Balance is key,” she says of the label’s androgynous looks, angular shapes with feminine details and fabrics such as leathers, silks, felted wools and sheepskin.
