AW19 Climatic Runway Review




The AW19 Climatic collection is inspired by MIAMI: a city on the front lines of climate crisis.

See the inspiration and behind the scenes of the AW19 collection in our zine

This past November, Chromat launched a second design studio in Miami, FL. The new collection was built in this tropical paradise and is designed to be worn from your South Beach workout to your sunset swim.


Simultaneously a paradise and a natural disaster, Miami is on the front lines of climate change with rising water, increased flooding and toxic red tides. Witnessing this has instigated a new consciousness focused on mitigating environmental destruction through sustainable fabrics and more. We recognize that the fashion industry contributes to poisoning waterways through use of toxic chemical dyes, mountains of fast fashion garment trash, inhumane labor practices and growing fibers with pesticides, formaldehydes and more.


We are committed to designing innovative swim and bodywear while ensuring a healthier planet. Chromat swim is made with sustainable fabric that uses regenerated nylon spun from fishing nets recovered from the world’s oceans. We also use up-cycled fabrics and work with safe, ethical, fair-wage factories.


Our goal is to design empowering garments for all bodies. This runway show celebrates the inspiring women, femmes and non-binary #ChromatBABES who inspire us to be bold and unapologetic every day.

"Chromat was articulating a vision for a post-Victoria’s Secret future, attempting to fill the void that purported perfection always leaves behind, cracking apart its archaic mold with a more generous proposition for what it means to sell sex appeal. As for the palm leaves, I’m not sure whether the nod to Victoria’s Secret’s signature angel wings was intentional, but I’d like to imagine it was — a wink as subtle as those dispensed by models on Chromat’s runway, eyes clear and open, looking toward the future."

– Man Repeller

"Consider salvaged plastic water bottles the breakout hair accessory of New York Fashion Week: Securing braids, while underlining that our oceans need to be saved."
– Vogue

"In this case, there is a sense of pragmatism to a swimwear based collection: Pretty soon it’ll be too hot to wear anything else. We might also literally be underwater."
– Teen Vogue

"Perhaps the most striking moment of the show, though, was the sneaky transition from vibrant flora and vegetation as accessories to plastic caps and bottles, signaling the growing problem of plastic waste polluting the ocean."
– Elle

"After fine-tuning her aesthetic for swim- and bodywear, the time was right for a foray into fresh categories. Fall’s barely there “dresses,” delivered in candy colors and held together with pieces of string, were daring and brimming with potential for the next phase of the Chromat revolution."
– Vogue Runway
