Dreamy clothing for daily life

Katastrophic is a clothing line by Dallas designer Melissa Taylor sourcing both materials and labor close to home to support a more localized fashion industry. Texas grown organic cotton is one of the staple materials in the line. Small batches are hand dyed into one of a kind color palettes in Dallas before being stitched with a local production partner in Taylor, Texas. Every style is designed, patterned, and tested by Melissa.

In addition to lingerie, Melissa has been working on a full ready to wear line of menswear and womenswear which you can see teasers for on her website, www.shopmelissataylor.com
