Debbie Katz was born in Argentina and was raised in Germany. She later moved to Miami where her daughter was born in 1998. She soon realized the challenge to find beautiful and comfortable children’s dresses to wear in the hot humid weather. Katz began designing dresses with help from her mom, a seamstress from Italy. Soon the women shopping at Debbie Katz starting asking for garments for themselves. Debbie found her signature fabric, cotton gauze, and delved into making women’s dresses. Inspired by the colors of the sea, the sky and her daughter, each piece is hand dyed with an exclusive technique created by Debbie.
