KATE BARTON Fall Winter 2023 Collection At New York Fashion Week
Kate’s approach to Kate Barton Fall Winter 2023 Collection was experimental rather than referential. Building on the singular aesthetic she affirmed with her introductory collection, she delved into developmental fabric with innovative and sustainable manipulation methods to give her experiential creations perpetuity – expanding on her exploration of shape and form.
Animated by experimentation and development, Kate was gripped by engineering new fabrics and novel amalgamations. In fusing unconventional fabric combinations, she transforms material into a completely new structure, and combined with her ever-evolving, minimal waste draping techniques, her authentic sculptural silhouettes exhibit textural contrast with a lightweight feel.
For Kate Barton Fall Winter 2023 collection, Kate Barton aspires to transcend the industry’s typical personality, or theme-driven preoccupations, with her singular processes: her use of geometric cutting and fabric manipulation techniques, draping without the use of seams or darts, succeed at transforming rectangular pieces of fabric into garments that swathe effortlessly on the body with a multi-dimensional perspective, her fabric-first approach is a sustainable solution that creates maximum volume without excess and layering fabrics.oo
These minimal waste techniques give opportunity to create endless possibilities, adding inspiration to hasten her innovative thinking.
The liquescent and multi-dimensional materials, assimilated with innovative manipulation methods, achieve classicism with an unconventional, modernized point of view. Magnified by her visual choices: stylist, photographer and models, Kate sets the tone for a univocally modern take on evening wear.
