So excited to finally share this photo set of my the wonderful Kerrin Smith of NYC-based fashion project CATiD. This cool east coast kid is truly one-of-a-kind. Since the moment I met Kerrin over drinks at a cozy East Village bar a few months ago, I knew I met someone who was going to make a difference in the fashion world. She's wise beyond her years, rocks vintage and designer like no other, and embellishes her life with brooches in a way that I've never seen before. Kerrin is exactly what CATiD sets out to be: Cool and Thoughtful. One thing is what the fashion industry strives so hard to be; the other something that it sometimes (well, most often times) can lack. It is very rare when these two worlds collide, but when it does it creates something so beautiful and inspiring that it pushes you rethink the inner and outer workings of an industry that endlessly puts out the image of having an extremely tough exterior. Because when you get to the bottom of it all, us fashion people really do have soft hearts. It just may take a little longer to find them. CATiD shows us how we can show this other, more personal, side of the industry much more often.
Check back in a few days to read the interview I did with Kerrin and learn more about CATiD and the brains behind it.
