About Kata Haratym
Hello, I’m Kata Haratym! I live in Kraków, a magical town and one of the major cultural hubs of Poland. It is here where the designing process of my clothes begins. Together with experienced local seamstresses and artists we create limited series of fashion pieces. We care about every single detail and create garment that my hometown has witnessed a number of crucial historical events, which made an imprint on my art as well. I’m inspired by fashion history, focused on details and accessories. One more source of inspiration are my amazing clients, “my muses”, as I often call them. One more passion is vintage. Remember, I live in a medieval town?) I’m in Love with fancy vintage fabrics – that’s why some of my clothes are limited edition, made of deadstock fabric, totally unique, impossible to copy. I used to work for fast fashion companies and I’m aware of some pros and cons of such work. That’s why I decided to run ethical brand and help other local artists make my designs. Hope you’ll share my vision and be my muse👐🏻
PS. Privately the proud mother of 2 cats- Lulu and Barry.
What’s important at Kata Haratym brand? I love the idea slow fashion- taking time in making detailed, dreamy designs. Life is too short to wear boring fast fashion clothes exploiting workers and environment. I work with local artist and try to use natural fibres and deadstock fabric. That’s why many pieces are unique (so you are). For the past 5 years I have been collaborating with photographers, stylists and other designers helping them out to make great photoshoots and videos. My designs and styled works have been published in Vogue, L’Officiel, Harper`s Bazaar, ELLE, Grazia, Marie Claire, Schön! Magazine and more.
