The Chromat Autumn/Winter CLIMATIC collection was inspired by MIAMI: a city on the front lines of climate crisis. This past November, Chromat launched a second design studio in Miami. The AW19 collection grew out of this tropical paradise and was 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.
THE FUTURE IS EMPOWERING, INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE.

"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."
