As NYC fashionistas run around town in preparation for the semi-sacred Fashion Week, we must admit that we’re beyond excited to sit down and watch HOUGHTON‘s chic SS13 runway unveil before our eyes…
Actress Katharine Houghton Hepburn is clearly the muse of the line, and this elegant second collection draws inspiration from this the notorious pant suits that transformed Hepburn into a style icon and redefined bombshell stereotypes from the 1930’s.
Katharine Polk is the creative force behind the label. She has been often asked if some of her pieces can be used as bridal, inspiring a whole new alternative bridal line which will come out in October. For those of you in NYC who want to see her SS13 collection during New York Fashion Week at Milk Made at the Standard Hotel, you can enter to win two tickets on their Facebook page.
Prior to creating HOUGHTON, Katharine was a stylist. She is also a contibuting NY fashion editor for Fiasco Magazine.
