Getting to Know...Kate from Who Wears the Pants

When and how did your business come to fruition?  When I was trying to find a smart, funky pair of pants for my son to wear to a special occasion. Concepts, trialing and research began in 2008 while the business came into fruition in 2010.

Describe your product range in one sentence: Affordable, quality clothing for everyday and special occasions.

What inspires your creativity? My surroundings. From my two sons to the places I visit. There is inspiration wherever you want to find it.

Describe and provide a photo of your favourite or most popular product from your range, and why you love it: The twirl skirts have been a real hit with the girls. Parents love the fabric that they are made from but the fact that they perform a great twirl really has made them a winner.

I am passionate about... all things made in Australia.

I get frustrated when... things take longer than expected.

I started my business because... I love creating clothes for my boys.

If handed $100,000 in an envelope and instructed to spend it however I pleased... I would go to Italy for an extended period and donate the rest to an orphanage in Cambodia.

If I could be anywhere right now I’d be... somewhere warm.

I am most proud of... my husband’s great achievements.

I think the biggest obstacle our kids will face in the future is... climate change.

My favourite item from our product range is...the Boy’s vintage polo tops.

My heart sings when... I watch my 2 year old son play with his pet rabbit.

The hardest part of running my business is... being everything all at once.

I love sipping on Brown Brothers Moscato... on a really hot day.

The best part of my day is...seeing my boys in the afternoon after a day at work.

My favourite food is... lemon tart.

I struggle...reasoning with 2 and 4 year olds.

Friendship to me... means being open and understanding.

I just can’t live without... my husband.

Meet Kate from Who Wears the Pants at Mathilda's Market in Adelaide on Sunday 31 October.
