Kate Barton is an emerging American fashion designer advancing unique approaches to evening wear.
She focuses on creating womenswear that is both sculptural and innovative while still being wearable and empowering. With an emphasis on innovation through two techniques, acrylic thermoforming and fabric manipulation cutting methods, her designs remain true to her aesthetic of elegance and sophistication, while exposing modern, bold details.
The silhouettes and unconventional material combinations used in her collections continually push the exploration of 3-dimensional shapes while infusing contrasting elements to create emphasis and detail.
She feels it’s important to have a balance between creating art and making the person feel beautiful in the garment.
Through her experimentation with technology, innovative approaches, and shape-testing, the designer is striving to create an atmosphere that entices the exploration of form and gives purpose and authenticity to an elegant garment.
