    Having worked with the likes of Mulberry, Lanvin, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, House of Holland, and Fred Butler, Katie Franklin boasts a client list that would put some supermodels to shame.

    Franklin's studio just off Brick Lane houses her culinary arsenal (we've never seen so much icing and sprinkles) and puts the baker in close proximity to East London's coolest haunts.
