FRIDAY GUEST FEATURE: Catherine Kim
Name: Catherine Kim
Hometown: Paramus, NJ
Occupation: Global Design Director, IMG Fashion Events & Properties
I oversee the branding and marketing (from a design perspective) of all Fashion Events around the world owned by IMG (New York Fashion Week, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, MADE Fashion Week, etc.)
Beloved piece: As I get older, it’s less about form and more about fit and function. I’m all about investment pieces- things that may be pricey at the time but will last a good decade and then some.
A good dark burgundy lip color and ripped, faded, bleached boyfriend jeans. The more worn-in the better. Pair with a perfect lose white T and a strappy metallic block heel and you are looking confident without trying.
Each of these elements can be worn in a million different combinations with other staples in your closet. Fit and function. It’s underrated.
Admired designer: Alexander McQueen for the avant-garde, Vince for the brand’s ability to nail the basics, Anthropologie because they understand curation and lifestyle.
Favorite aspect of fashion: The personalities. People don’t just wear fashion, people breathe and live it.
One more thing: Everyday I try to be a little bit more like Beyonce.
