Atelier Kate S/S 2018
September 14, 2017
When Katherine Tramposh got out of college, she swore she would never own her own fashion brand. But later on, she found herself looking at the way the fashion industry was run and didn’t like what she saw. She wanted to start a brand that reflected the changes she wished to see in the industry. A brand that was fair trade, environmentally conscious and, at the end of the day, for the people.
In a chic, white and pristine studio in Chelsea, Tramposh presented her Spring/Summer 2018 collection for her label, Atelier Kate. The first model entered sporting a simple, leather, skirt and shirt set. Her face was covered with a small beaded mask draping over her forehead and down her cheeks, held together by smaller beads going across her eyes and nose. The use of leather continued to stay prevalent throughout the next few pieces, often acting as the complementary element of a less a eye-catching material. This made the leather the main event.
Eventually, the prevalence of leather shifted to a royal purple satin material. First introduced in a piece in an understated manner, and then the purple satin became the focal point of the outfits.
At the end of the show, the designer came out to thank everyone who attended and spoke about how important this collection was to her – specifically, the importance her brand holds to organic and fair trade fashion. 10 percent of each item purchased from the brand goes to one of the three charities that it supports. If you are looking for fashion that is elegant, understated and beautiful, as well as socially and environmentally responsible, Atelier Kate is the way to go.
