Meet Deb, New Creative Director for Katherine's Collection


Katherine's new Creative Director steps in with a lifetime of experience in the design industry, rivaled only by her love of the craft.

Deb comes to Katherine's Collection with an extensive career in the Home Décor Industry, and has spent her career designing collections as well as directing and managing creative teams. 

She has been responsible for some of the most recognized names in home furnishings, from developing exclusive products for the largest wall covering and fabric companies in North America, to exclusive brands in the craft industry such as the Home Shopping Network, and even retail core programs for JoAnn’s and Hobby Lobby.

Since jumping on board with Katherine's, Deb is enthusiastic as she remarks on the collaborative effort and quality work that comes from such a talented group. "From sculptors, to fashion designers, to pattern makers, to painters, visual designers, and illustrators, everybody has a unique style, and together we create beautiful, high-quality products."

Ever since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to be a designer; color, pattern, design, it’s what I love to do.
— Deborah Zadnik

She finds inspiration from architecture, antique and thrift shopping, runway shows, major design shows, the history of fashion, and even her own garden, thriving from the endless inspiration around every corner.

"I love researching and pulling together story boards to start the process and show the vision. Seeing it all put together, from those hand-drawn concepts to the very end, is where it gets exciting."

Deb is looking forward to diving into Katherine's creativity. "We are unique in the industry, no one does the quality and specializing that we do at Katherine's, and they know the business; it makes you very proud of the work you do."

Keep in touch as Deb brings timeless tradition with innovative flavor to Katherine's Collection and the unique accessories they love, and be sure to meet the rest of our team.
