Katerina Psaltos



Life is not as simple as black and white geometric shapes, it is curved, warped, zig-zagged, organic and every shade of gray in between. It is the quality of human error that gives work personality; the marker of true luxury.
Sheltered creatures know not of what’s beyond the coup, but those that venture out learn to adapt to a corrupt and unfair world. This collection seeks to prove that a life of chaos and experience doesn’t taint; rather it cultures and strengthens the mind, body, and soul. This is expressed through couture manipulation and drapery of mundane lining and base materials, as well as the destruction of pure, elegant fabrics; demonstrating that despite status and origin, true beauty in fashion, and in life, is unexpected, emotional, and imperfect.
Imperfection romanticized in black, white, and shades of grey.


Katerina Psaltos is an artist with an affinity for romanticism, illusion, chaos, and imperfection. She often finds herself drawn to unexpected, awkward sources of beauty, organic shapes, and gothic elements.  As a distinctly feminine designer, Katerina tends to use drapery, print, and textile manipulation to accentuate the assets of the women she adorns.  Though time-consuming, the love she puts into her hand-made textiles demonstrates her attention to detail and her genuine passion for craft. 

She is a graduate of Parsons School of Design with a BFA in Fashion Design and a minor in Creative Entrepreneurship. In fall 2020, she was selected as a Fashion Scholarship Fund finalist in recognition of her case study which explored a conceptual fashion brand of cognitive behavioral therapy clothing.
