Lady Kataryn Mercer
|Award & Office Badges|
I am Kataryn Mercer, called "Kit" by friends. I am a costumer by preference with an interest in recreating clothing worn in the 16th century, through both historically accurate or innovative methods.
On January 25, 2014, I entered a formal apprenticeship with Mistress Vienna de la Mer.
Kataryn Mercer is the daughter of an English silk merchant, living in London, England. Though they are working class, her father's successful business allows Kataryn access to the finest silks from abroad, as well as the latest fashions.
