Kristen Luong

Kromagnon’s Mackintosh jacket is made with recycled bottles salvaged from the ocean.
Kristen Luong, Menswear '13, sources innovative, sustainable materials such as silkworm cocoons and recycled saris for her men’s and women’s wear brand, Kromagnon. The clothes, sewn and hand-printed with natural dyes in the Garment District, start at $250 for dresses and $500 for jackets. She is a member of the FIT Design Entrepreneurs Collaborative, a shared showroom and office, and the clothes sell in New York, Florida, and Switzerland boutiques, as well as online and in pop-up shops. Luong’s next project is a line of adaptive wear, designed with Xian Horn, an educator and activist with cerebral palsy.
