K. Vaughn Scarves: Winter XV Collection
by Kira | Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the showing of Philly designer K. Vaughn’s 2015 winter collection. For more than 20 years Vaughn has designed unique, quality garments for both men & women, eventually finding his niche in luxury neckwear. K. Vaughn scarves are not your average pieces. Each collection features eye catching fabrics & appeals to the individual who wants to stand out in a crowd. I sat down with Vaughn to ask him a few questions about his success & longevity.

K.K.  What inspired you to begin a career in fashion design?

K.V.  I’ve always loved fashion & wanted to be a buyer, but never had the chance. So I decided to start designing my own clothes.

K.K.  What advice do you have for up and coming designers?

K.V.  Don’t do it! (lol) Start small with one or two pieces that you do very well, i.e. pants, skirts, etc…

K.K.  Why just scarves? Why not an entire men’s collection?

K.V.  I actually make clothing for both sexes. I started in women’s then transitioned to menswear. However, I found scarves to be more accessible & the production cost is much lower.

K.K.  What inspired this latest collection?

K.V.  I wanted to do a collection of knits, wools, & luxe fabrics like velvet and sequin. I knew sweaters were going to be big this season.

K.K.  Lastly, the K. Vaughn customer is ______ ?

K.V.  Everyone who knows themselves!

    I just bought two fabulous scarves from you, Vaughn. One I bought outside 20 Manning restaurant: a sumptuous, caramel-colored velvety fabric, as rich as a tapestry, that’s perfect in this autumnal weather. I soon bought two others at your 2nd-Street show: a dramatic emerald-green silk and a deep olive wool scarf with embroidered leaves in a pale chamois. You have a real flair for design, so keep up the great work. Nothing adds as much flair and lyricism as a beautiful scarf!
