Specializing in demi-couture, off-the-rack and custom shape wear, corsets, iconic 1950s bullet bras and steamy seamed stockings, it is the baby of lingerie and fetish-wear designer Katie Halford.

What Katie Did

Ms. Halford became enamored with the glamour of vintage fashions as a teenager and found it easy to acquire authentic retro clothing but could find very little vintage lingerie to help fill her outfits out, so she began to design her own. Post University Ms. Halford, who never wears trousers, worked for several years as a designer in a London fetish shop where she was inspired to follow her own unique fashion vision by opening her very own luxury lingerie boutique.

What Katie Did originally sold only seamed stockings like the ones Katie herself wore every day but their product line soon expanded to all varieties of lingerie, shape wear and corsets plusanything else that caught Ms. Halford’s fancy.

Named after a favorite children’s book, What Katie Did’s followers can now purchase everything from feminine white lace undergarment sets to fetishist-a steel-boned leather corsets and all styles between at their online shop, their Ebay boutique or directly from their stalls at weekenders like the Helmsby Rockabilly or Rhythm Riots. Describing her design style as “50s Goth” for its darker-than-Doris-Day feel, Katie’s lingerie is deliciously racy, oozing suggestive pin up girl glamour without a trace of seediness.


Her ‘Striptease’ tie-side knickers and bralettes are naughty yet glamorous, her cheetah-print ‘Josephine’ set is pure vintage sex kitten and her ‘Hollywood’ line is straight-up 1930s starlet. Ms. Halford, who confesses to being an impatient seamstress, creates simple patterns that can be fabricated quickly by a skilled hand without compromising on quality or fit, and will consistently deliver alluring wasp-waists and lusciously generous curves to each body they grace.
