For Kaelen Haworth—creative consultant, stylist, and visionary behind Absolutely Fabrics—fashion transcends beyond a passion. A Parsons graduate, Haworth embarked on her fashion journey by creating her eponymous fashion line, Kaelen. The brand’s success was undeniable, earning it a coveted spot in the CFDA Incubator and a presence in esteemed retailers like Intermix and Shopbop. Building on this foundation, she launched Second Sight, a direct-to-consumer and size-inclusive brand that exemplified her commitment to accessible and stylish fashion.
Yet Haworth’s path took an unexpected turn, leading her into the world of editorial and celebrity styling in 2020—ultimately highlighting her adaptability and creative flair and showcasing her innate ability to seamlessly move between different facets of the fashion world.
