Home » About


I am a freelance journalist with extensive experience writing about news, homes and decorating, travel, pregnancy, parenting and women’s issues. But everyone is a journalist these days, aren’t they?

I also have six children, which isn’t so common.

During my sixth pregnancy I started a blog called Diamonds and Daisychains, which grew into a fabulous women’s writing community with over 20 contributors. I even sometimes (rather ambitiously) called it an online magazine!!

I am particularly passionate about ethical fashion. I campaign for both legislation and consumer awareness about the provenance of our clothing. I source ethical fashion and accessories for companies interested in creating a supply chain they can be proud of. And of course, I only buy sweatshop-free clothing for myself and my family… some of which is there for the world to see on Instagram Stripped Bare Fashion.

I hope Stripped Bare Fashion will become a resource for ethical fashion information and inspiration. If you’d like to write or campaign or collaborate in some interesting way, drop me a line at kate@strippedbarefashion.com
