ABOUT KAELEN

Kaelen Haworth is a Canadian living in and running her own eponymous label in New York City. While attending Parson, The New School for Design, Kaelen interned for Jenni Kayne, Stella McCartney and lingerie brand, The Lake & Stars.

Designing from a minimalist perspective with a focus on subtle details, KAELEN seeks to combine the traditional and innovative, exploring the dichotomies of masculine and feminine, classic and modern. KAELEN strives to create pieces that are at once intelligent, archival and treasured.

In 2014, Kaelen was selected as 1 of 10 designers in the CFDA’s {FASHION INCUBATOR} Class 3.0.
