Catherine Andreozzi is an apparel designer and has been a principal of her own firm since 1989. Catherine Andreozzi, LLC, specializes in knitwear design and research & development for the private-label niche of the better women’s and children’s apparel markets. Her collections have been exhibited in Milan, New York and Las Vegas. Clients include Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Liz Claiborne, J.Jill, Curio, Talbots, Marmaxx Group, and Smith & Hawken .
Andreozzi co-founded Sugar pi, a children’s ready-to-wear line that focused on luxury knitwear. As president from 2004-2006, Andreozzi was the driving force behind conception, creative direction, design, and branding of the line. Exhibited internationally at Hong Kong Fashion Week and New York’s ENK’S Children’s Club Show, the collection was also prominently featured at the pre-Golden Globes’ gift giving suite in Los Angeles. Sugar pi was also exhibited in Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Boston, and LA during those children’s wear market weeks.
Andreozzi’s work has been featured in fashion editorial publications including WWD, Accessories, Earnshaw’s Magazine, and Boutique Magazine. She has also consulted and contributed to books and to other publications including Condé Nast and The International Herald Tribune.
After graduating from RISD in 1987, Catherine lived in New York working for Kathryn Conover as designer for that dress line, before transitioning to knitwear design at Jennifer Reed. She then became design director at Rebecca Stone and later Northern Isles.
Andreozzi has taught, instituted and led the implementation of industry-leading CAD programs for the design departments of several apparel companies, including Curio and Kellwood Company’s Northern Isles division.
While working in the fashion industry, Catherine designed and marketed a fine art sterling silver jewelry collection under her own label, allowing her the opportunity to experiment freely in a different medium.
Catherine is constantly expanding her professional skills and is currently exploring new techniques for hand manipulated machine knits, textiles and shape in her studio.
