American fashion designer KATE BARTON unveiled her Fall Winter 2023 Collection, that explores developmental fabric with innovative and sustainable manipulation methods, on February 13th, during the recently finished New York Fashion Week. The collection fuses unconventional fabric combinations, and transforms material into a completely new structure. For the season the brand’s authentic sculptural silhouettes bring textural contrast with a lightweight feel. Fashion photographer David Luo captured the lookbook featuring models Astrid Voss, Salidat Khamil, Cara Fravel, and Jillian Medina. In charge of casting direction was Trew Productions. Beauty is work of hair stylist Andrea Nervis, and makeup artist Tayaba Jafri for Laura Mercier.

“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. These minimal waste techniques give opportunity to create endless possibilities, adding inspiration to hasten her innovative thinking.” – from Kate Barton
