Sustainable fashion by Kate March.
60 million tons.
That is just how much plastic the fashion industry is responsible for producing globally each year. On top of that, the United Nations Environment Program stated the industry has a larger global carbon footprint (10%) than international flights and shipping…combined.
It’s no secret the fashion industry is having a large impact on the planet. This is what inspired Kate March, a sustainable fashion designer and stylist based in New York City. Her brand UNDONE creates garments out of sustainable fabric that is often thrifted or found in the back of your closet. Created in her boyfriend’s bedroom at the beginning of the pandemic, March has grown her business into a successful brand worn by fashionistas and celebrities alike.
With a distinctly grunge style, UNDONE not only creates ready-to-wear garments but also works with clients to transform their favorite vintage t-shirts into something new. Singer Camila Cabello recently wore a custom UNDONE blazer with laces down the arms on an episode of NBC’s The Voice. A similar lace up blazer and trouser is currently available on their website as well as the blazer Cabello wore.
Rocking two tone pieces, visible stitching, and garments almost collaged together, UNDONE also works to create unique items. With multiple collection collaborations with The Golden Canvas and Topo Chico, each look is handmade by March.

UNDONE embraces the city of New York as their backdrop. In a place where anything is possible, March creates pieces made to walk the city streets.
“I hope that whichever Undone piece you slip into makes you feel confident and ready to take on the world! After all, style and confidence requires knowing yourself and wearing what YOU feel best in.”
