This season, in the traditional Chromat way, New York Fashion Week SS20 runway had models of all ages, sexes, and backgrounds. Chromat has put inclusivity on the board for the past few years and that’s always been the brand’s mission. The “sample size” T-shirts of Spring 2019 were turned into a patchwork gown with a built-in bustier on the model and body-positivity activist Tess Holliday.
Beginning in 2010, founder and designer Becca McCharen-Tran was focused on creating collections for a diverse group of people. What’s even better is the fact that they use only sustainable materials and ethical factories. Each collection explores the merging of architecture, fashion, and technology, creating apparel that amplifies and appreciates the body’s performance through innovative design and cutting-edge technical fabrics. Chromat is designed in New York City and Miami by a distinct collaborative effort extending from artists to scientists to choreographers.
