Cath Kidston

Designer and businesswoman Cath Kidston's quintessentially English floral patterns have established her as a household name throughout the UK and beyond. Cath moved to London from Hampshire aged 18 and worked in interior design, before setting up her own decorating business in 1993. There, she began to sell the colourful furniture and printed fabrics which have since taken over the high street.

Her choices from the Summer Exhibition include Royal Academicians Cornelia Parker, David Nash and Gary Hume.
