Kim Schalk

Alexandria, VA

I am inspired by nature, by math, and vintage garments (thank you suffragettes and Dior). But my true voice is that of a tomboy who loved to play with bugs. While designing I ponder, can a woman be both strong and feminine? This question is a persistent conflict in my design. Even the materials convey duality: soft terry knits folded into architectural shapes or diaphanous silks merged with stiff cotton. I use technique, material, and aesthetic to speak for me.
