Spring Summer 2013 Debuts!

I'm very excited to present my newest collection for Spring Summer 2013!
"Starla is Shipwrecked" showcases versatile knit pieces, inspired by Russian Orthodox sacred imagery and the deep sea, which can be mixed and layered to create a variety of looks for all occasions. Each piece is made by hand by the designer (myself) and my team, and the collection as a whole integrates hand dyeing, custom embroidering, and a special collaboration with Austin's Chaos Card Company who worked with me on screen printing glow-in-the-dark artwork on some of the pieces (which I LOVE and am super excited about!). I am also excited about the two beautiful micro modal fabrics made from birch tree fibers that I was able to use for this collection. One is blended with 8% spandex for an extremely comfortable fit and silky surface, and the second is a 10% silk blend which creates an unbelievably soft and delicate, yet durable, semi-sheer knit. Most exciting of all, the whole collection is available for pre-order from NOW through December 31st! Orders placed before Nov. 15th will begin shipping in February and later orders will ship by May 1st. You may pre-order through Etsy or contact Katastrophic directly at katastrophicdesign@gmail.com.
