Katina K: Fatalist, Catalyst, or A-list?

Career Focus

I grew up in a small town, where sticking out from the crowd was not the hottest place to be. I was far from the most popular girl, preferring glam rock attires to Vuarnet t-shirts, but I had a friend who was all a proper schoolgirl shouldn’t be: wild, free, exotic, and crazy. “Unique” couldn’t even start to describe her, and it’s still far-fetched today, when most people tend to fade away with modern life’s responsibilities.

She studied at LaSalle College, intensifying her individuality, while most of us tried to conform to a socially acceptable education. She was our eccentric friend, the one who brought life to the party. Last time I saw her, she lived in a so-hip apartment right off Crescent street downtown, and she had the best connections you could dream of.

Musings of a Fashion Production Manager

Career Focus

As a production manager I am privy to the not-so-pretty innards of the industry, but by the same token I get the first whiffs of designers handiwork and creativity. It’s not always hunky dory in my seat, but I’m allowed to roll glamour (of the fashion world) with hard work (e-mailing even in my sleep!), hedonism (perks that let me own the trendiest samples) with patience (we work way ahead of your time, fashionistas :)).
