Nolcha Fashion Week: New York, now in its seventh year, is proud to announce the return of designer, Katty Xiomara, who will be showing her Spring/Summer 2015 collection at Nolcha for the third time this season.
Xiomara, who is known for her geometric patterns, has taken the art form of a “chocolatier” as her inspiration this season by melting geometric shapes and creating more organic forms. With this, the color blocks were exposed of their rigidity, leaving the structure bare and originating a set of intertwined lines and points, outlined by wavy cut-outs. The result is subtle and lighter, offering her consumer “organic geometry in wire frames.”
The collection is a futuristic and retrospective mix, with a very lucid and practical take on the urban woman. Just like a chocolatier can’t predict the shape of an individual chocolate, the silhouettes bloom uniquely throughout the line. White color and smooth materials are constant, with black outlines and striking cut-outs seen consistently in the line.
“We are thrilled to have Katty Xiomara return again this season,” says CEO of Nolcha, Kerry Bannigan, “She brings an edginess to our show that is equal parts modern and classic, drawing in a global audience of press, buyers, retailers and stylists who are always eager to see what kind of fun she will create next.”
In July 2014, Katty Xiomara was awarded second place prize in the Pret-a-Porter competition for the SKETCHCOLORS project, which recognizes legendary design visionaries and uncovers emerging talents in architecture, interior, product, graphic and fashion design on a global level.
The Katty Xiomara runway show will take place at 6pm on September 8, at a new venue this season: Eyebeam Atelier, located at 540 West 21st Street between 10th and 11th avenues.
Official Sponsors include: Franciacorta, DON Q Rums, Adrian London, Otter Box, Defiant Whisky, Bella forma Wines, Neulook and Dasani.
