Designer Catherine Litke was raised in New York and Poland, and received her B.F.A. in Studio Art from New York University in 2010. It was during this time that she began her career in fashion with an internship at US Vogue. Following her graduation, Catherine spent a number of years working under some of the fashion industry's top stylists and editors, and it was her extensive travel during this period that inspired her to create her namesake line of impeccably crafted pieces, all made in the United States using beautiful and sustainable materials sourced from around the world.

Founded in 2012, LITKE mixes a combination of classic minimalism and eccentric tailoring, merging the understated with a sense of excitement in its unique details and unorthodox shapes, making for clothes that are both innovative and timeless.
