Austin, TX

Katastrophic is an independent fashion label in Austin, Texas produced by designer Melissa Taylor.  Shop Katastrophic's lookbooks for dreamy, minimalist shirts, dresses, jackets, and intimates.  


The SS16 collection is a visual meditation on disillusionment, self destruction, and defiance in the face of despair.   T shirts, Muscle Tanks, and Lingerie with grunge undertones and handcrafted details are made from hand dyed Texas grown organic cotton.   A color palette inspired by Midcentury Modern era Sci Fi pairs with text embroidered on antique chainstitching machines by Austin’s Ft. Lonesome.   Limited edition screen printing by Don Rock of Chaos Card Company injects a dose of vaguely unsettling poetic imagery into these versatile daily wardrobe staples. 

Lookbook photographer V. Alard Lisbet’s work  has been featured  in  Desire: New Erotic Photography published by Prestel, on the cover of the Atlas Review, and an editorial in L’Imparfait.  He also has two monographs published by Pogobooks.
