The CFDA Fashion Incubator 3.0 Class
Kaelen Haworth is a Canadian living in and running her eponymous label in New York City. While attending Parsons, The New School for Design, Kaelen interned for Jenni Kayne, Stella McCartney and lingerie brand, The Lake & Stars. One year after graduating, KAELEN launched with a collection shown during New York Fashion week in 2011. Designing from a minimalist perspective with a focus on subtle details, KAELEN seeks to combine the traditional and the innovative, exploring the dichotomies of masculine and feminine, classic and modern. KAELEN strives to create pieces that are at once intelligent, archival and treasured. Her idols include Tilda Swinton, Jeff Bridges and Joan Didion. Overboard and The Great Outdoors are two of her favorite films. She is in love with almost all music, excluding crossover country-pop.
