"I want to speak to the essence of a woman through design, the complex amalgamation of intelligence, wit, strength and sensuality. In simple terms- I want to dress women, and maybe take them a step farther than they would have gone alone" Kate Brierley
Kate Brierley, Isoude's designer, grew up as a young equestrian; her daily uniform created in her an indelible respect for soundly constructed pieces. Fresh and timeless design is something highly valued at Isoude. "To purchase clothing is a transaction, to build a wardrobe that ages with you through life- is enrichment, we design for the latter."
Isoude offers a ready to wear collction as well as a made to order, so that clients may customize the fit of a piece or select a custom color or fabrication.
Isoude pieces can be found in our Newport boutique, with our select wholesale partners and by appointment in the major US cities.
In 2010 the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation selected Isoude as a semi-finalist. In 2009, Isoude pieces were twice inducted into the permanent collection of the FIT Museum. Isoude pieces have been covered by Vogue.com, Style.com, the NY Times and WWD.
Educated at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the Rhode Island School of Design and the Haute Couture House of Chado Ralph Rucci, Kate spends her time between Boston, New York City and her farmhouse in Jamestown, RI.
