Hi, I'm Katie from What Katie Did and I'd like to welcome you to my company. I've always been interested in 1950s fashion and especially the underpinnings: you can see my corset story in the video here. While it's easy to find true vintage even today, finding wearable vintage lingerie is another story. I started to collect lingerie and nylons from the 1950s but I didn't wear as much as I liked as I didn't want to damage it.
I started What Katie Did in 1999, with just £100. At this time is was very difficult to find Seamed Stockings either in shops or online. I built a very basic website and opened a stocking stall in London's Camden market.
Today we have two boutiques, in London and Los Angeles, over 100 stockists worldwide, plus of course, this website.
