New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012- Kaelen

Kaelen Farcombe launched her brand, Kaelen, in 2010 after building an impressive resume that includes a degree from Parsons and internships at Jenni Kayne and Stella McCartney. The Toronto native is quickly making a name for herself and was recently named one of the top 10 designers to watch by Women's Wear Daily. Her aesthetic can best be described as a sort of deconstructed femininity; the understated beauty of her collections lies in her flattering cuts and use of unusual color palettes. Her fall 2010 collection is simple and sophisticated, each look a combination of strong shapes done in delicate fabrics such as silk and lace. 

The line is modern and clean, and focused on longevity and restraint as opposed to be trend-driven."

"I didn’t want aline that came across as formulaic, because the woman who wears the clothes is creative and distinctive with her clothing."
