Meet the Designer: Kate Van Asten
WE ASKED EACH OF OUR DESIGNERS IN RESIDENCE TO TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT THEMSELVES:
Describe your line in three words. Minimal casual luxury.
I am inspired by… touching fabric. Everything should be screaming to be touched.
I first knew I wanted to be a designer when… I sewed all my own clothes in high school.
If I could have lunch with one person, alive or dead, it would be… Kurt Vonnegut.
The fashion designer I most adore is… Charles James' architecture. Audrey of Ovate's small business and textural fabrics.
If I could dress anyone in the world, it would be… Anna Wintour
My biggest fashion faux pas was… Wearing butter-yellow to a wedding where the bridesmaids wore butter-yellow.
My favorite piece of clothing is… my leather jacket.
Every well-dressed woman should have… Wulfka.
I can’t live without… leather gloves.
My happy place is… a beach picnic.
I am obsessed with… chunky knits.
My motto is…
every day is the best day ever.
