KZ_K Studio

Karolina Zmarlak

Full Bio

The KZ_K Studio tenants of modernism extol the use of technologically advanced materials integrated into a purely functional form for maximum efficiency and versatility, minimizing excess, and maximizing utility, resulting in a light, refined, essentially minimal product form. 

The KZ_K Studio has developed exacting standards, specific to their particular approach with advanced technical fabric selection, design focused on transformational personalization, product development combining specific double faced fabrics, flexible form patterns and seamless finishes, allowing the collection and each garment to express the convertible, reversible, functional and individual goals of the studio and client. 

The design development and product transitions: from concept, to drawing, to technical flat, to pattern making, to tech pack creation, to cut and sew, allow a process in which new evolutions of the key concept can be perfected, and new advances to studio techniques can come to life. The KZ_K Studio is design driven: the collections’ precise design details come as a result of concept-focused technical decisions and trained expertise with variable garments. The final product, after layers of quality control and factory oversight, reach the client in a manner that creates delight in the discovery, and generates multi-functional value, with a keen aesthetic and long term, sustained quality found in each piece.
