el leal "the loyal"
Is a remembrance of past, present, and future through the lens of loyalty in relation to Chosen Family and identity.
“From green to blue to red to white illustrates the absorption of my trauma, and my past through the colors of a visible light spectrum. The whole collection is achieved through the use of natural dye on white fabric symbolizing the era of my life I am in and that this collection is a reflection of my past. Through the use of patterns they illustrate the rise and fall of turbulence in my life.”
"One Size Fits Most -let your clothes grow and change with you"
"In this collection I have created one size fits most garments that fit a US 0- US14 that is inspired by the intimacy of garment sharing within family, and through the creation of this system your clothes can grow and change with you."
Katlyn Le Leal is a Vietnamese Mexican designer based in New York; their work focuses on one-size-fits-most-garments inspired by the intimacy of garment sharing between family members.
They hold not only a commitment to inclusivity and body positivity but aim to create garments that will fit you just as well the first time as your last. Their philosophy combines the practice of a slow fashion system, one-size-fits-most-garments with sustainable sourcing such as the use of natural fibers, fabrics, and threads to target the issues of garment consumption that lead to waste and pollution.
