“We treat the body the same as an architect treats the building site looking for context lines, experimenting with new materials and working on defining silhouettes. The woman we design for is unafraid, intelligent and interested in standing out.“
Becca McCharen is an unorthodox fashion designer living and working in New York City. Powerful women have served as inspiration for the work she produces. Sold under the label Chromat, McCharen work draws heavily from her background in architecture and urban design, creating what she has termed "structural experiments for the human body." The scaffolding-like structures we create at Chromat build on my architectural design foundation.
