Early life[edit]

Since the age of 15, Coulter has worked in the London fashion industry in all venues, from helping organize ID magazine photoshoots, coloring sketches for Vivienne Westwood, to dressing models at shows at the age of 17,[3] including Hermès. She received a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design in 1992 from St. Albans College of Art and Design in London and a Fashion Design at Diploma Level from London’s Southend College of Art and Design in 1993. Afterwards, she attended Central St. Martins[2][3] from 1993 to 1996, honing her creativity in the company of designers like Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Phoebe Philo. She graduated with her bachelor's degree in Fashion Design in 1996.

Early career[edit]

Coulter co-founded the UK Menswear brand, AKA,[4][5] with fashion designer Anne Marie Ng, acknowledged for its "highly desirable collection of relaxed tailoring"[6] which sold at Colette in Paris, Barneys, Bergdorf's in New York and distributed from Paris to Japan. Together they designed and produced stage outfits for the female band All Saints[7][8][9] as well as t-shirts for Hugh Grant in the movie About a Boy[10][11] and commissions for Game Boy.[4][12] Some celebrity fans of the brand included Kate Moss, Liam Gallagher, and David Beckham. From 1996 to 2003, she also designed women’s wear under a private label[citation needed] for Urban Outfitters and consulted with their buyers on a monthly basis.

Design accomplishments[edit]

Apart from AKA, Coulter, designed a line of clothes for Richard Ashcroft, and tour t-shirts for the band, Starsailor. Other design accomplishments include t-shirts for Keira Knightley, and t-shirts based on About a Boy for the House of Fraser, clothes for Virgin Music, and a limited edition tracksuit for Pro-Keds.
