Steampunk Couture is one of a number of businesses owned by Kato – a Welsh girl now living in the Portland, Oregon in the USA . In 2005, Kato set up Steampunk Couture in Wales but by 2007 she had moved to America. Steampunk Couture has the honour of being the first steampunk clothing company in the known World.

The clothing designs capture the essence of steampunk and thanks to Kato’s heritage and current location mix, the designs have both a British and American feel to them. The clothes are all hand crafted and focus on Neo-Victorian, Sci-Fi and Shabby Chic fashion”.

Kato’s styling is a wonderful mish mash of accessories and garments that don’t match. She works alone on her designs and brings out a new range every season. You’d think that designing and making designer clothing would keep her busy enough, but she also has a flourishing modelling career thanks to her impossible good looks. The advantage being that she doesn’t have to look further than a nearby mirror for a model. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also the owner of Steamgirl – a subscription based photographic gallery of steampunk erotica.

On Steamgirl, members get to view Kato and her many equally flawless friends in varying states of undress. There’s new content added every week and members also get admittance to a bonus website.

You can buy prints of Kato and friends from Steamgirl for the more risqué images or on This Is Kato for her regular modelling shots. She has covered various themes using a steampunk aesthetic but also has borrowed from popular culture, such as Babydoll from Sucker Punch. Prints are $19 for a signed 8×10 or $39 for a signed 20×30 inch image.

Kato spends a lot of her time flitting from the USA to the UK and is open to modelling assignments but is no longer working on a TFP/TFCD (Time For Prints/Time For CD) basis.
