Amy Karle is an artist and designer who uses the mind, body, science and technology to create her work. Examining both material and ethereal aspects of life, Karle’s work taps concepts of what it means to be human and in this body, expressing internal experiences in visual forms; in turn her garments inform an internal experiences of how we feel about ourselves and in our body. In this short video she speaks about her motivations, process and vision in creating “Internal Collection” garments based on anatomy.

In a dream of anatomical overlays, Artist Amy Karle switches up conventions about the body and beauty by showing representations of internal systems in external wearable form. Considering identity through the body and healing and augmenting the body, the garments were created by hand and digital manufacturing technologies. Each garment is based on a different aspect of the body (ligaments, lungs, cardiovascular system,  nervous system). By depicting designs inspired by our internal systems, this work communicates that when we share our likeness and what is going on inside of us, it offers an opportunity for finding beauty within ourselves and connection with others.

Releasing October, 3th 2013

Get Out.

Clothing designed with a bunch of way’s to get into them, for the girl who has to get out of it. Madame Kate’s Collections of Kathryn Elizabeth’s Spring/Summer 2014 Modular Clothing Line releasing October 3rd 2013, with Fashion Week San Diego at the San Diego Broadway Pier, should quicken the pulse.

Collections of Kathryn Elizabeth offers a single garment to suit many needs. Using strategic shapes, engineered materials, and creative construction techniques, mixed with a supporting background in garment design, melded with science, brings success from ingenuity. Collections of Kathryn Elizabeth represents a perspective. Distinguishing, and durable, the single garment adjusts to other pieces of a wardrobe, redefining itself for other occasions, saving space, hiding stains, and addressing function.

Regularly finding oneself in unforeseen binds,…there is nothing greater then doing “the walk of shame” in a fresh outfit, to vacationing with no luggage.
