Spring/Summer 2019 Saturation Runway Show
Our Spring/Summer 2019 SATURATION collection is inspired by wet t-shirts. We wanted to reclaim the experience of hiding under a giant T-shirt at a pool party (when you’re too embarrassed to be seen in your swim) and make it a garment to wear proudly.

This summer we (finally) extended our sizing up to 3X (more sizes coming soon)! To celebrate, we launched the #ChromatPoolRules campaign with some inspiring #ChromatBABE Guards who set out to change the pool rules. No diving? How about no intolerance.

Our mission 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.

"I think about myself as a little girl, wearing my dad’s t-shirt over a swimsuit at a soccer tournament pool party, feeling like a fraud. What I would have given for that girl to see Chromat’s cast of models with different bodies, skin tones, abilities, identities, and bangs, in swimwear that made them all look hot ... These women and their fashion pieces make me feel like maybe there is a space for me too, whether it is in a pool or at NYFW."
"Armed with a platform, McCharen-Tran used her finale to hammer home a point. With models of every incarnation emerging in shirts that bore the words sample size, she sent the message that fashion as a whole needs to embrace inclusion. It’s a move that would make shows like Chromat’s the norm rather than the exception."
"Continuing to embrace an unapologetic, inclusive philosophy, Chromat showed a wide selection of swimwear options for all body types."
"As one of the voices leading the charge, [McCharen-Tran] can rest assured that she will be responsible for saving many more lives down the line."
