A custom plus size fit and flare dress was created for a plus size client. The dress was donated to a 501c3 nonprofit: Spring Lake Foundation, a charity that helps families and children in need.
A custom drape and pattern was created, then cut and sewn. The dress was fully lined with silk charmeuse and finished with hand stitching at the hem for a clean finished, comfortable lining.

If there's one thing that makes me feel like I'm officially on vacation, it's being on a dock at a harbor with a row of million dollar yachts. None of the yachts are mine, but it doesn't matter the pretty boats gently rocking in the breeze remind me that I'm far away from my office. Far away from any dishes I need to wash, or laundry I need to fold. For now, all I need to do is not fall in the water. So far I've
Headbands have become rather popular since they appeared in several recent major runway shows. I keep getting Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl) vibes from several of the headband wearing fashion bloggers I follow on Instagram, making me even more excited that the show is getting a reboot (expected in the spring of 2020, who's watching with me?!). If styled correctly, headbands have a way of co
It's no secret that many apparel companies use underpaid and often exploit workers to produce the clothing they sell. If this is no secret, why do people continue supporting brands and companies that use unethical labor practices to increase their profits? While some people shop fast fashion without understanding the full consequences of their choices the majority of customers are simply shopping within their budgets. Studies have shown that people want to invest in ethical fashion, but rarely do because there are not enough options within their price range. In this article, I will discuss three ways in which you can source ethically produced clothing at very affordable
I work at home a lot, often opting for a sweater and jeans while sketching, sewing, and draping. By the time I head out to run errands, go shopping for supplies, or meet up with friends, I am ready to dress up a little more. The confidence boost I get from wearing a strong outfit is unbeatable- I feel more prepared to take on whatever I need to get done.

The Kate Stoltz Wynwood Dress is an asymmetrical piece with waist cutouts. Made with Italian superfine 120's merino wool and delicate French snakeskin lace, the black dress is light enough to wear in the spring, summer evenings and early fall. The dress design was inspired by the chaotic beauty of the Wynwood Walls murals in Wynwood, Florida.
Kate Stoltz was featured in Style Verify, an online media platform. The New York based fashion designer talked about her favorite beauty products, travel destinations, and cocktails.
Going to art shows and galleries is one of my favorite weekend activities. Living in New York City means being close to the pulse of the current art scene, along with a seemingly endless display of iconic pieces in museums. I try to make the most of that. As a fashion designer that is always searching for new ideas, I like to know about new techniques and ideas in art. The techniques and ideas often spark ideas of something new that I can try in the upcoming Kate Stoltz collection. Scope Art Show
is always worth the trip... I wore a dress from the Kate Stoltz Spring/Summer 2018 Collection. You can see it here: Kate Stoltz Dress

Valentine's Day is known as a day to show our loved ones, especially our significant others, how much we love them. It's also known for rosy pink and red colors, cupid's arrows and hearts. This year, Kate Stoltz NYC is running a pre-Valentine's Day sale to help women prepare for the special day. The selected products were carefully chosen based on color, design and occasion.
In the meantime, remember what the holiday is meant to bring out of people: love and compassion. Show love to people you meet, people you pass on the street and don't forget to show love to people online. As more of our interactions with strangers and friends happen behind computer screens, some people forget that the online interactions are just as important as the ones in person...

How many pieces of fabric are used to make a dress? It highly depends on the design of the dress. The Kate Stoltz NYC Mermaid Dress has 92 pieces of fabric plus the zipper. The paneled dress is made to hug the figure, using custom measurements to tailor the dress. Fully lined with 100% silk, the Kate Stoltz NYC black lace dress has two layers of silk. One layer for the lining, and another to back the black lace exterior. Each seam is finished with a French seam to finish the dress, and to prevent fraying. The Kate Stoltz NYC dress takes approximately a week to create, starting with the pattern. Each seam is pressed and trimmed as the dress is sewn to achieve a polished look. Finally, the dress is finished by a hand sewn hem and label. All this work is done in New York City in the design studio of Kate Stoltz NYC.
