Kat Marks is an established clothing and accessory designer who uses specialized craft to produce original fashion objects. Her products are used as a tool to establish a visual dialogue in film and photography.
‘The Karass’ is Marks’ graduating collection. This 12 piece collection consists of wet-moulded vegetable-tan leather bibs, rigid plastic chest plates and tuxedo bow-ties.
Marks collaborated with SHOWstudio and iconic British photographer Nick Knight to produce fashion film ‘The Karass', which highlights the material nature of her craft and is an inspired mix of film noire and as with many of her collections, the writings of Kurt Vonnegut.
Kat Marks is originally from Calgary Alberta Canada.
