CHROMAT: Structural Experiments for the Human Body

Chromat is an American fashion label based in New York City. The label was formed by Becca McCharen in 2010. Drawing from Becca McCharen’s background in architecture and urban design, Chromat focuses on structural experiments for the human body.

Chromat began in 2010 as an extension of McCharen’s degree in architecture design at University of Virginia School of Architecture. It was originally a collaboration with fellow architecture student Emily Kappes. Chromat’s structural language is the foundation of each garment: from the simplest bikini to the most complex 3D printed dress. Chromat swimwear, lingerie and signature architectural cages are all made in New York City.

Chromat designed custom pieces for Beyoncé's 2014 MTV VMA Performance, the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, as well as Super Bowl XLVII halftime show in 2013. Chromat garments have also been worn by Madonna on her 2012 MDNA World Tour, Nicki Minaj on her 2011 Femme Fatale World Tour and Powerhouse 2014 performance, and by many other strong, powerful women, celebrities and musicians.
