החל ממרץ 2016

Designer Katharine Polk has revealed her nine year struggle with anorexia and bulimia that caused her to drop to 92lbs and throw up blood before she allowed herself to slowly start putting weight back on.

The 33-year-old co-founder and head designer of Houghton penned a powerful essay for Harper’s Bazaar explaining that her battle with body image started in elementary school and led to an eating disorder that had been her ‘most guarded secret’.

‘I don’t remember if there was a single day I decided to try to get better,’ she wrote of her ongoing struggle. ‘I had dropped to 92 pounds and my health was suffering. Slowly, I had to try and keep some food down because I was scaring myself, throwing up blood. I was exhausted from living this double life.’

Katharine said her insecurities about her body started when she was in fifth grade and bullies would call her fat and leave her in tears.

Even though she wasn’t fat by any means, she explained that being teased for her size made her start to pick herself apart and compare herself to everyone from professional models to her friends.

As an 11-year-old competitive horse rider, she was also being told repeatedly that her 4’9″ frame and build were ‘less than ideal’ for the sport.

After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles in, she took a job in New York City and was determined to lose weight and ‘fit in’ as quickly as possible.

It was at that time that Katharine’s eating disorder started, and she found herself ‘obsessed’ with working out. Her dieting and workout regimen became more and more extreme; she knew that if she ‘only ate 500 calories a day’ she would lose weight even faster than she was.
