Kate Barton Ss24 Sketch

Kate Barton

Kate Barton is a recent graduate from Savannah College of Art and Design. She is an emerging American fashion designer advancing unique approaches to evening wear, with a concentration on creating womenswear that is both sculptural and innovative while still being wearable and empowering. Kate's mission aims to advocate for causes that will lead to positive change in the world. She focuses on innovation through two techniques, acrylic thermoforming and a sustainable geometric cutting method, blending 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. Kate 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, she is striving to create an atmosphere that entices the exploration of form, and gives purpose and authenticity to an elegant garment.
