Member Spotlight: Stylist Catherine So
Our member spotlight of the week is stylist Catherine So. Originally from Hong Kong, this recent graduate from the Academy of Art University caught the eyes of ASTONISH editors for her dark romantic themes in her styling portfolio. Catherine is also a fashion designer, and definitely someone to watch out for next year.
ASTONISH: How did you get started with styling?
CATHERINE: Originally my main focus is fashion design. However, I started taking an intro class on styling at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco during the Fall of 2011. I love looking at beautiful, dark romantic editorials and learning about the history of fashion. This inspired me to become a stylist because I want to tell people what beauty is from my point of view.
ASTONISH: What do you love most about styling?
CATHERINE: I love how styling becomes a way to express or represent myself. I enjoy each process of my styling productions because everything becomes real from my visualizations.
ASTONISH: How would you describe your own personal style?
CATHERINE: “Dark romance” perfectly describes my style. A long black dress with transparency or lace is what I always love to wear everyday.
ASTONISH: What is your dream styling project?
CATHERINE: My dream styling project would be styling for my own designs, as I am also a fashion design graduate. I would love my designs on famous high fashion models in Europe. Also, someday I would love to style for Alexander McQueen and Valentino.
